In some shocking news, a British man has shot his own finger off to get rid of a painful wart that had been plaguing him for over five years.

Sean Murphy tore off most of his middle finger after downing several pints and aiming a shotgun at it.

But his shotgun surgery landed him in court where, he received a 16-week sentence suspended for 18 months for possessing an illegal firearm.

Doncaster Magistrates' Court was told how Murphy had been to see his GP and tried several creams - but nothing could get rid of the wart.

Fearing he would be stuck with it forever, Murphy, who was living in a caravan, picked up the 12-bore Beretta and blasted his finger.

Wednesday, he declared he was "happy" as he was handed a 16-week suspended prison sentence.

"I know I could have gone to jail for up to 15 years for a firearms offence," the Sun quoted him as saying.

"My solicitor did a very good job. The best thing is that the wart has gone. It was giving me lot of trouble," he added.
