Diary: Awards-do Romeo has his antics stopped by the Mighty Muncaster

Another awards do at Grosvenor House, another bout of fisticuffs.

It was only last month that Southwark Crown Court was told of the punch-up at the Direct Marketing Awards. Now there has been more booze-fuelled brawling, this time at last week's M&M Awards.

It all started with a would-be Romeo, who can count his lucky stars we are not naming him. Clearly the subtleties of courtship had eluded him in his drunken pursuit of his Juliet. Ironically, words were of no use to the man from a translation company, so he decided to seize the opportunities that came his way with both hands, as it were.

Few in the Great Room escaped unfondled - even one man, bless him. The poor chap told us he can still feel "Romeo's" fingers snaking through his hair.

Enter our hero, Metro International's global vice-president of advertising, Lawson Muncaster. With no thought for the safety of his own genitals, the "lunch master", as he is respectfully known, did everyone a favour and confronted the lecherous loon.

Cue a surge from the crowd and chants of "Scrap, scrap, scrap". There was no contest. The mighty Muncaster was victorious.

Soon, no doubt, there will be hoards of excited tourists queueing on Park Lane for ringside seats.
