Bin­men face sack over street brawl

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

A COUN­CIL whose slo­gan is “achiev­ing ex­cel­lence” has been left red-faced af­ter two of its BIN­MEN had a fight in the mid­dle of the road dur­ing a col­lec­tion day.

The brawl saw punches thrown, kicks aimed and ex­ple­tives fill the air as shocked lo­cals watched.

Now the crew­men in the punch-up will have to wait to see if it earns them the sack from Staffordshire Moor­lands Dis­trict Coun­cil.

Res­i­dents in Chea­dle watched in dis­be­lief as two bin­men jumped out of the rub­bish truck and be­gan a dust-up.

One ter­ri­fied res­i­dent said: “I saw them jump out and start throw­ing punches. It’s dis­gust­ing.”

Ron Locker, a mem­ber of Chea­dle Town Coun­cil, said: “I thought bin­men would be too busy to find the time to fight.”

An­other spokesman con­firmed they are aware of the in­ci­dent and that it is “be­ing dealt with”.
