Grandmother Fights Off Burglar With A Barbecue Fork (VIDEO)

Don't mess with Margaret Jackson, kids!

The super-cool grandmother from Houston, US, has become something of a YouTube celebrity since fighting off a prospective burglar with a barbecue fork last Friday afternoon.

Margaret, 73, talks us through exactly what happened - while staging a partial re-enactment - in this Fox News clip.

Sadly, the intruder managed to get away - but, as Margaret tells the TV reporter, she's not concerned about him returning. "Oh, he ain't coming back," she insists.

Margaret has since offered to run fork-based self defence classes - while the police have dubbed her the "gangster granny", according to our friends across the Pond at The Huffington Post.

Nice work, Margaret!
