In the case of a very slow news day, or possibly the UK jumping on the “terrible weather news” bandwagon in its own way, the Plymouth Herald published a news story about a trash can being blown over.
IN A sign of just how windy it really is outside, a dustbin has fallen over onto its side.
The toppled wheelie-bin was spotted in Tavistock Place, off North Hill, by Herald reader Dave Arthur.
The Herald hopes there will be no further reports of items blowing over but if you do spot one, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
This scene is recreated on my street every week after the garbage is picked up. However, since they are round, I often have to run down the street chasing my trash cans. Still, the newspaper can’t hold a candle to the weather hype in the satirical Galway Daily News.
