Strange goings-on in Nailsea leave levitated bin on top of road sign

By Geoffrey Bennett

People in Nailsea were flabbergasted after some joker placed a bin on top of a road sign.

Mystery surrounds how the black bin in High Street was hoisted aloft the one-way sign overnight. People passing by this morning (May 14) were faced with a spectacle akin to a modern art installation.

The sight sparked a flurry of reaction from people posting on community website Nailsea People, which shared an image of the raised receptacle.

Emma Pontin posted: "Oh the joys of Friday night! Credit where it's due getting it to stay up there! Joking aside, this is dangerous as if it fell it could either hurt someone or fall into an oncoming car and cause a crash. Who'd have thought Nailsea would have people who would do things like that?!"

Sally Nailsea said: "Probably the same sweet souls who have started to wreck the bunting in the precinct already."

Mike Davies posted: "Excitement in Nailsea at last."

Meanwhile a couple of people theorised that the bin's elevation could provide a new challenge. Mark Bradley posted: "It's for the poo baggers who lob them into trees to up their game."

Neil Ridley said: "This could be a new Olympic event.. see how far back you have to stand, to fling the dog poo bag into the opening, get it in three times in a row, bang, gold medal, two times, silver. One time bronze…"

Laura Shields came up with a good thought, posting: "Last day of school for year 11s and 13s before they embark on GCSEs and A Levels for the first time in two years. Just letting off steam and having a bit of fun I expect."

Dave Soper added: "Bin there..done that."
