A Scottish electrician got a surprise when he turned up to a customer’s home and found a room covered in Nazi memorabilia.
George Taylor went into the bedroom at the home in Dennistoun, Glasgow so he could change over plug sockets but was shocked by what he stumbled upon.
The tradesman from Greenock, Inverclyde took images showing the single bedroom covered wall to wall with historical artefacts.
Large red flags bearing the swastika have been stuck up on the wall surrounded by various helmets and Nazi armbands.
Several pairs of boots are lined up at the back of the room alongside another Nazi flag while a swastika rug is shown on the floor.
An Adolf Hitler poster has also been stuck up underneath a shelf in the room.

The centre of the room is taken up with a rug bearing the Union Jack flag in a direct contrast to the rest of the interior.
To the left of the room there are several Nazi officer jackets hanging up.

Is is legal to own Nazi memorabilia?
Since the Second World War there has been a stigma attached to owning Nazi -themed items.
Despite this, many people do collect memorabilia from that shameful episode in history.
Guns, knives, uniforms, flags and even motor vehicles from the Third Reich have all found homes in the UK.
There are no specific laws in the UK banning the sale of Nazi memorabilia, whereas some countries in Europe such as Germany and Austria do have these.
Some auctioneers and websites do refuse to sell them, and there have previously been calls from MPs to ban the practice.
Sam Armstrong, of counter-terrorism think-tank the Henry Jackson Society, warned of the dangers of selling such products.
He said: ‘We know that a prime market for these vile symbols are the far-Right thugs who wish to attack this country and those who live in it.’
