Eminem impersonator causes panic

The reveller was dressed as US rap star Eminem
A chainsaw wielding Eminem impersonator caused panic when he decided to make a dramatic entrance to a fancy dress party - but got the wrong address.

Police were alerted after a terrified Lincoln resident answered the door to the reveller - who was brandishing the roaring power tool and wearing ski goggles and salopettes.

Officers arrived at the address in Atwater Close, Lincoln, at 2130 BST on Saturday to find that the man had gone.

They discovered he been intent on making a memorable entrance to the soiree and had skulked off into the night after realising his mistake.

A Lincolnshire Police spokesman said: "The poor occupant was clearly frightened out of his skin.

"The guy turned up at the door with the chainsaw running and must have looked terrifying.

"Luckily he had simply gone to the wrong door.

"It must have been rather embarrassing for him."
