Police last night stepped up a hunt for Mr John Chandler, aged 35, who stormed out of his home in Reading, Berkshire, after a Star Raiders video game beat him.
Mrs Linda Chandler said yesterday her husband had been playing the Atari video game last Tuesday. 'He was getting soundly beaten and became very angry. He kicked over a tray of tea cups and was very ratty. Soon after, he got in the car and drove off. I have not heard from him since. I am very worried and want him to come home.' She said at the guest house which the couple run in London Road.
