Developer threatens to flatten Beatles tour guide
The jaw-dropping email exchange between Beatles tour guide Philip Coppell and Maghull Developments managing director Michael Hanlon – who is behind a controversial scheme in Liverpool’s Hope Street – simply has everything.
In response to Coppell’s criticism of the project to controversially flatten and replace the historic Josephine Butler house, Hanlon got pretty creative with his abuse. As well as branding the guide a ‘wanker’, ‘a fucking ignorant pig’ and a ‘dickhead’, he also threatened to bury him in the foundations of the new buildings – a move which the developer said would delight the ‘poxy’ guide's own wife.
The police have allegedly been contacted over a possible harassment charge. The unbelievable, unedited emails can be read in their entirety here.
