gulftoday.ae reported…LONDON: American tourist David Wills found himself trapped in a London Waterstones late last night after staff closed up shop whilst he was still perusing the shelves on the second floor.

Using social media, Wills reported on his after-hours adventure at the Trafalgar Square book shop. He said on Twitter that he had been upstairs for about 15 minutes before discovering that the store had been closed, and he was locked inside of it. After one hour stuck in the store, he posted on Instagram a picture of the locked door, saying “supposedly someone is on their way.” At 11pm, two hours after the store had been closed, the Texan tourist tweeted to the official Waterstones account, pleading to be let out. He said: “I’ve been locked inside of your Trafalgar Square bookstore for 2 hours now. Please let me out.” Read Article
