A MAN flipped when he spotted two schoolboys egging his house on CCTV – before he hunted them down and filmed them scrubbing up the mess.
Jack Oldroyd, 22, returned home from work last month and was disgusted to to discover his front door had been egged.
The Gas engineer realised the 'hit and run' was recent because the egg was still runny so he quickly checked his security cameras in a bid to catch the culprits.
Determined to get the pair to clean up their mess, Jack jumped in his car and drove round the area to track them down – joking that it was like a scene from Neeson's action thriller Taken.
After catching the pair, Jack confronted the red-faced duo who repeatedly apologised and promised to clean up the mess.
Jack, from, Wakefield, West Yorks, said: “I came home from work on that Sunday and there was egg running down the door so I knew it had just happened otherwise it would have baked on.
LIAM NEESON MOMENT
“I went inside, watched the CCTV and saw the two lads throwing eggs.
“I thought ‘right, I’m, going to find you and I’m going to make you clean that off’ – it was a bit of a Liam Neeson moment from the film Taken.
“I didn’t want to clean the door, I wanted them to do it.
I thought ‘right, I’m, going to find you and I’m going to make you clean that off’ – it was a bit of a Liam Neeson moment from the film Taken"
“I got changed and had a quick drive round but couldn’t find them anywhere.
“On the way back to mine I saw them and pulled over, I thought ‘perfect, I’ve found you, you’ve done this to my house, you’d better go clean it’.
“They went bright red, they knew what it was for before I’d even spoken to them.
“They just apologised and said they wouldn’t do it again. I told them ‘I know you won’t, you’re going to come and clean it’.”
The 25-second video shows Jack filming his front door in disbelief that it’s been egged with the text ‘Hahahahaha what the hell I’ve been egged, least it wasn’t the car’.
The clip then shows the CCTV footage where the two lads, who Jack believes are around 13 years old, walk past his house with the text ‘Right then you little f***ers I’ll find you later’ slapped on it.
One boy can be seen launching an egg at the door before the pair scarper away.
The final clip shows the pair scrubbing the wood effect door with soapy water with the text "lesson learnt" written across the screen.
Jack said: “After speaking to them I drove home, I didn't expect them to actually come. They knocked on the door apologised again and then cleaned it.
“I gave them a bucket of warm soapy water and some cloths to wash the door down with.
“It took them about ten minutes to clean off as the sun had cooked it onto the door, hopefully it’s a case of lesson learned.”
