A gardener who got fed-up with his wife left and spent five years living rough in woods.
Malcolm Applegate claims he could no longer get on with her after she became unhappy that his hours at work had increased.
Malcolm said: “The more work I took on, the angrier my wife got. She didn’t like me being out of the house for long periods of time. I was married for three years, but unfortunately it got too much.
“I decided to leave for good. Without a word to anyone, not even family, I left.”
