A London businessman is fed up being "fobbed off" over an unpaid bill...

Franz Ferdinand are being chased by debt collectors due to an unpaid restaurant bill.

The bill, dating back to April, relates to a meal at Frocks restaurant in Hackney, London where drummer Paul Thompson and his wife Esther celebrated their marriage.

Owner of the restaurant Andy Steel said: “I just got fobbed off so I’ve got a debt collector trying to pursue it.”

A spokesman for the band said: “He’s been away so much for the past six or seven months that he’s not been able to keep track of his bank account,” reports Ananova.
