Man puts bins out


Reports are emerging that a man in Rochdale has put his bins out.

Stephen Dickinson of Fazzakerley Drive has put his green bin out on the kerb early to maximize social distancing.

“It was the highlight of my week” Mr Dickinson told The Rochdale Herald. “I can’t wait to take it back in again.”

Mr Dickinson, who lives alone and hasn’t interacted with another human being since the beginning of the government’s lockdown, is unsure whether putting the bin out counts towards his daily exercise so will leave his daily walk till tomorrow just in case.

Yes, ok, it’s a slow news day.
