The National Weather Office has issued a Yellow Wheelie Bin Warning as gale force winds move into the UK.
The warning means that wheelie bins should be secured to avoid them blowing over or even flying through the air.
Derek the Weathersheep, honorary member of the National Weather Office told WalesOnCraic:
“We’ve got some pretty heavy winds moving into the UK and as we’ve seen in the past, this can cause devastation for the nation’s wheelie bins. Worst affected areas will be those who have just had a bin collection because their bins will be empty and more susceptible to movement. We’ve already heard reports of food bins being strewn across roads in Scotland and scenes of destruction like this will pop up all over the UK as winds move southward. We are also expecting snow so combined with the heavy winds, we could be in for a torrid time.”
Hamish McDonald from Aberdeen got in touch with his local media to tell them that his wheelie bin had blown over.
“My wheelie bin blew over,” he told local reporters.
