Singer visited through plumbing by Milk Snatcher

Glam-pop hero Patrick Wolf has claimed he used to be tormented by the unsettling sounds of Margaret Thatcher in his drainpipe at his old London flat.

While being interviewed on NME Radio, the singer revealed: "The night I moved in I had a shower and started hearing this noise. It was Margaret Thatcher! I could hear her through my drainpipe!"

"At first I thought I was on drugs, but then I realised I wasn't on drugs."

Rather disappointingly, however, Wolf wasn't being visited by a supernatural Iron Lady. She was actually a tenant in the flat downstairs.
