Angry one-armed dad Jonathan Collinge has chained himself to a chair in Ilkeston JobCentre.

The 28-year-old is making a stand after the JobCentre allegedly refused to pay him money they have owed him since Friday (August 8).

This is the second time that Mr Collinge has chained himself up inside the building, in South Street, Ilkeston.

Mr Collinge told the ‘Tiser he will remain chained to the chair until they give him what he wants.

“I’ve got some munchies with me so I’m alright,” he said.

“I’m sick of having my human rights breached.”

The proud father said the final straw came yesterday (August 11) after his electricity was cut off.

He said he saw this move as his only option.

“I’m not daft,” he said.

“I’ll sit here until they sort it out.”

Mr Collinge has asked to speak with a manager and is waiting for a response.
