The word is used around the country but heard most around the Norfolk and Suffolk area as this is where it originated from.
A name believed to have derived from a Mr Peter Dingle living in the Norwich area who was renowned for innocently causing mayhem where ever went.
To include blocking major roads, shutting down entire supermarkets, knocking out a whole city’s telecoms to simply putting a nail through his foot and this was all down to just bad luck.
If you were to leave your luggage unattended for 2 minutes and have it is removed by the bomb squad?
.....then you have 'Dingled'
