Dine and dash costs £2,078

The Herald - - NEWS -

A STU­DENT quaffed a £1,750 bot­tle of vin­tage wine as he cel­e­brated his birth­day alone at The

Savoy ho­tel – and then tried to do a run­ner.

Yahya Egeh spent his 20th birth­day on his own in the restau­rant at the fives­tar venue after be­ing stood up by a woman.

The ar­chi­tec­ture stu­dent de­cided to drown his sor­rows in a £1,750 bot­tle of 2004 Chateau Mou­ton Roth­schild.

When Egeh saw the £2146.50 bill, in­clud­ing ser­vice charge, he tried to slip out of the ho­tel, on The Strand in Lon­don, with­out pay­ing but se­cu­rity nabbed him.

A dis­trict judge or­dered him to pay £2,078 but let Egeh off with pay­ing the £238.50p ser­vice charge.
