WATCH: One man's agonising attempt to drag his wheelie bin up an icy driveway

It's a struggle for the ages

There are advantages to not leaving things till the last minute.

For example, putting out the bins the night before a frosty forecast means you don't have to worry about the dangers of sheet ice.

This lesson was learned the hard way by Alun Miles, from Forest of Dean in Gloucestershire, who underwent the Sisyphean challenge of dragging a wheelie bin up the slight incline towards his front gate.

Thankfully Alun's effort was caught on camera by his wife Samantha, who even attempts to shout some helpful instructions from the window.

 

Trying to put the bins out this morning a little frosty one could say !!!
