Derek is the strangest sleeper in Europe. Repeated medical attempts to treat his sleep problems have failed him and he continues to undergo a strange metamorphosis from a mild-mannered gentleman by day into a thrashing wild animal while he sleeps. Derek's night-time antics have been so violent, he has had to resort to drastic action like building a grate down the middle of the bed that he shares with his wife to protect her. He has head butted and punched the walls, ripped out light fittings and made violent dives out of bed, waking with blood and bruises all over his body.
