Could you move the pylons? Can you pretend to be my wife? Can you moor my barge?

These are some of the bizarre requests Travelodge staff in Norwich have been asked by customers during the last 12 months.

Travelodge released a list of strange questions guests have asked staff at its hotels across the country, and claimed that Norwich provided some of the strangest examples.

They included:

•Could the electricity pylons be moved for my next stay? (Norwich Cringleford)

•Can you call my boss, pretend to be my wife, and tell her I'm stuck in traffic? (Norwich Central)

•Can I hold a brainstorm with your team? (Norwich Central)
