Scorned Linda's posters may be gone but her message isn't forgotten

HELL hath no fury like a woman scorned.

And Graham certainly learnt how true that was when dozens of posters appeared around Warwick town centre highlighting his affair with another woman.

His former partner, known only as Linda, plastered some 50 posters around Warwick which read ‘if she is so good in bed you can stay there!’

It continued ‘Merc keys in the canal, locks changed, cards maxed’ and ends reading ‘Happy New Year, Linda xxx’.

The posters were printed by Leamington-based printing company ThrowingRocks but the firm has confirmed they were genuine and were not some elaborate PR stunt.

Malcolm Cook, who owns Bar Catalan on Jury Street in Warwick town centre, has offered Linda a free bottle of champagne if she identifies herself at his restaurant.

Speaking to The Observer, Malcolm said: “A poster appeared outside our bar and I know the man who runs the business listed at the bottom of the poster (Throwing Rocks) so I dropped him a quick text message.

“He got back to me and confirmed Linda was real and I thought to myself it’s an ideal chance to do some promotion.”

Malcolm confirmed Linda did not actually live in Warwick, but that Graham was a town resident.

He added: “It’s clear Linda and Graham are real people, but right now it seems she wants to protect her identity.

“On the night which the posters first appeared we had a laugh as a few of our regulars are called Graham – not that they knew about what had happened.

“On Saturday I was told the story had hit national headlines before hearing that Linda and Graham are real people on Monday.”

The story has gone viral online.

BBC sports presenter Jake Humphrey tweeted: ‘These started appearing across Warwick yesterday. I wouldn’t mess with Linda…’.

The posters were taken down by ThrowingRocks on Monday.
