I got home to find scaffolding up around my house – I thought it was a practical joke | The Sun

A MUM was stunned after returning home to find scaffolding around her house – leaving her so shocked she thought it was a practical joke.

Sarah Johnson was left baffled when she arrived to find workmen had put the metal poles around her property while she'd been out.

She began thinking her landlord might have commissioned some repair work – but proceeded to find out he also "didn't have a clue" what was going on.

The mum, from Plymouth, only found out about the "bizarre" situation when her neighbour Courtney Chapman text to ask what work she was having done.

Sarah said even after Courtney had sent her a picture of the house, she still couldn't believe it admitting she thought it was a photo filter or a wind-up.

Her neighbour even questioned the workers and informed them the owner hadn't requested any scaffolding – but was told no mistake had been made.

However, seeing the funny side of it, Sarah and her son were left laughing once they saw it for themselves.

And after a short while, Sarah – who lives on Walnut Drive – discovered the scaffolding was put on her property accidentally, reports PlymouthLive.

The boss of scaffolding company Scafftec Ltd then reached out toSarah to apologise after it happened last month.

He explained the work was actually meant for a house on Walnut Gardens, which needed work doing on the windows – which is what Courtney claimed she had told the workers to begin with.

Sarah claims the workers were not "very happy" to be back the following day but praised the company boss who was "very apologetic".

Scafftec have since said the issue has been dealt with and clients on both parts had been contacted.
