Pub ‘vampire’ is still cross
A PUB landlord accused of being a VAMPIRE has finally won the battle to clear his name.
John Teagle, 68, mine host of the Walmer Castle Pub in Margate, Kent, was accused of being a bloodsucker by his wife Elsa’s family in the village of Argawanon, on Cebu Island in the Philippines.
The dad-of-three, who married Elsa 23 years ago, was “cursed” by her aunt after he refused to lend her money.
The aunt told a local radio station he was a “descendent of Dracula” and sucked kids’ blood.
But last week the island chief reprimanded those responsible for the rumours and ordered them to stop.
Teagle said: “They were severely reprimanded but it still left a bad taste.
“It’s gone away a lot now – but it’s not dead.”
