Angry that the garbage men refused to pick up backlog of rubbish after workers' strikes last month, residents of West Yorkshire resorted to a little civil disobedience:
Angry residents annoyed at binmen who refused to pick up a backlog of rubbish left after strikes last month barricaded a refuse lorry and its crew in their street.
Children and parents from the quiet cul-de-sec formed a human chain around the large truck to stop it driving away while another resident blocked the road with his car.
The defiant families, angry after watching waste build up since the council strike on July 16 and 17, told the rubbish collectors: ‘You shall not pass.’
