The Ladder of the Law

A Romanian judge has ruled a man must use a ladder to get into his first floor flat because his neighbor owns the ground floor entrance.

Eugen Dimitrescu, 70, had been using the entrance for years until he fell out with the family living downstairs. Now, following the ruling, he has to climb 15ft up a ladder to get into the sitting room window of his apartment... but he's preparing to appeal.

"I will take this to the very top," he vowed. "I cannot go on living like this. Passers-by see me on the ladder and think I'm a window cleaner and ask me if I can come and clean their windows."
