Flat-pack rage

More than 40 per cent of people who assemble flat-pack furniture lose their temper before finishing the job, a study revealed today.

The research, led by Dr Miles Richardson of Derby University, questioned 1,295 people who had attempted to build anything from shelving units to coffee tables.

The results showed that 67 per cent admitted getting into difficulty, 33 per cent misread or misunderstood the instructions and 13 per cent managed to damage the item before they finished constructing it.
