Cabbie fights Glasgow terrorists

From Scotland's Daily Record:

    Battling taxi driver Alex McIlveen faced down the Glasgow Airport terror suspects ... and his courage cost him his favourite pair of trainers and a £30 parking fine.

    Dad-of-two Alex punched and kicked the two men after they crashed a Jeep Cherokee loaded with gas canisters into the door of Terminal One.

    The 45-year-old booted one of the suspects, whose body was covered in flames, as hard as he could between the legs.

    But the man didn't appear to feel the blow, and a police doctor told Alex later that he'd damaged a tendon in his foot.

    After the drama, police confiscated Alex's trainers for forensic tests.

This is the best part:

    "Then I kicked him with full force right in the balls but he didn't go down. He just kept on babbling his rubbish.

    "I couldn't believe that he was still standing. I know I would have been floored by that kind of kick."

What a way to lose a pair of trainers, or as you guys call them sneakers.
