The 44-year-old worker on a temporary contract “lost his job at Haarlem railway company Nedtrain for cutting a colleague’s vuvuzela in half”, Dutch News has the Haarlems Dagblad reporting.

“It is vuvuzela terror.”
When he sawed the offending instrument in two, he was “ordered to report to the boss and sacked on the spot”.
