A protective dad has installed a Peter Kay alarm at his daughter’s house in an effort to ward off intruders.
The hilarious warning siren was installed by Emmett Hood after an intruder got into Shannon Barker’s home.
Worried about his daughter’s safety, the 47-year-old electrician came up with an ingenious solution.
Now, if anyone walks into Shannon’s front garden early in the morning, an alarm shouts: “Get back you b******d or I’ll break your legs.”
Shannon, 36, from Salisbury, Wilts, explained: “My dad fitted a full camera system for me.
“And this what happens when you walk on my path between the hours of 12am and 6am.”

“Welcome to Shameless,” she joked.
Her dad installed the alarm, complete with its line from comic Kay’s Phoenix Nights TV comedy series after Shannon had a drunken intruder in her home.
Let’s hope the rest of her street are fans of Phoenix Nights, as Shannon added: “My whole street got awoke at 5:30am this morning because of the wonderful camera system dad installed.”
Her video about the hilarious moment, shared to TikTok, has received 1.5million views, plus lots of praise from fellow Peter Kay fans.
One man wrote: “That is quite possibly the best thing I’ve seen.”
And Steve Brooksbank joked: “He managed to do that but couldn’t spray a bit of WD-40 on a door hinge.”
