And finally… manhole o’ war

And finally... manhole o' war

A group of workmen were filmed winning a tug of war with a manhole drain from released doorbell footage.

Laura Staunton from Milton Keynes was given a bit of a laugh after checking her Ring doorbell camera after receiving a notification that there was movement outside her home.

Clicking on the app, Laura was just in time to see five high-vis men falling over as a rope gave way.

The mum-of-three said the incident made her “burst out laughing” at work.

The logistics worker said: “I was busy at work so ignored the notifications at first but it wouldn’t stop chiming so I took a look.

“I burst out laughing and showed my boss.

“I burst out laughing again later when I got home and saw the second guy nearly fall in the bush.

“All of them were laughing about it and no-one was hurt.

“They had put the gravel back in place so without the doorbell footage I would have had no idea anyone had been there.

“I wish I had spoken to them through the Ring.

“They drove past later and still seemed to be laughing.”
