A henpecked German has chosen to do time in jail rather than pay a parking fine to get away from his nagging wife.

The 47-year-old man, from Itzehoe, faced a 55 fine - or 10 days in prison if he didn't pay up.

Police in the town said they were stunned when the man rang up and asked them to come and pick him up from his home.

"He said he couldn't stand the constant bickering at home with his wife and was looking forward to a bit of peace and quiet in jail," said a police spokesman.
