The Manc - Digger driver who smashed up Liverpool Travelodge jailed for five years"

The digger driver who smashed up Liverpool Travelodge has been jailed


The man who ploughed a digger through a Travelodge in revenge for unpaid wages has been jailed for five years and four months.

John Manley, 36, was seen on camera in January 2019 purposely using a construction vehicle to smash into the Liverpool building, screaming “all you had to do was pay me”.

Manley was owed £600 in wages at the time, but was not paid over the Christmas period and launched an attack that caused more than £400,000 worth of damage.

The video went viral and Manley was arrested.

Liverpool Crown Court's verdict arrived on Wednesday and has conjured up some heated reaction on social media.

Manley had apparently threatened to cause damage in the days leading up to the event, saying he would attack the building unless he was paid.
