Fat ninja of Axbridge still at large
The fat ninja of Axbridge remains at large.
Resident Baz Hamblin’s pick-up has been targeted twice by a sword-wielding 20st man due to a case of mistaken identity.
However, efforts to find owners of the same model and colour of vehicle have failed.
The fat ninja's presence was last felt three weeks ago when he struck the same vehicle again.

Instead of attacking the silver pick-up on Houlgate Way with a samurai sword this time, it is thought the same assailant opted for a blunter arsenal by smashing in the windscreen, driver’s window and bodywork some time after 1.30am on Tuesday, April 16.
Hours before PC Pete Wills updated Axbridge Town Council on March's tyre stabbing attack, and expressed surprise no one has seen anyone matching the Somerset-accented man’s distinguishing appearance: 40 years old, large build, black goatee and short black hair with a Middle Eastern appearance.
PC Wills said: “No one of that description has been in the shop so there’s not much I can do about that. But at 5ft10 and 20st, that’s more of a Space Hopper than a ninja.”
The ninja’s victim is lavender field owner and now auctioneer Baz Hamblin, who is at a loss as to why he is being targeted.
He said: “It would not hurt to let the ninja know he’s got the wrong guy.”
