Ray Wood is used to staying in Heartbreak Hotel. But the Elvis impersonator ended up in hospital after a bottle of juice exploded in his face.

Mr Wood, of Birstall, had just arrived at Holmfield Industrial Estate, Halifax, on the way to a job when he opened the bottle of STILL pineapple juice.

He said: “As soon as I took the bottle top off it exploded in my face. It felt like a bomb going off in my face.”

He was treated for a badly swollen and bloodshot eye.

He works as a wagon driver when he isn’t paying tribute to the King but will not be able to drive until his eyesight returns.
