FOR KICKING HEAD OFF SNOWMAN

A BINMAN has been told he won't be working for Wigan Council again after he kicked the head off a snowman built by a three-year-old.

Wendy Whimper caught the man on CCTV as he destroyed her son Desmond's impressive snowman, saying his actions were "shocking".
When snow covered the borough on Sunday (January 24), the snowman was built by children in Queen Street, Wigan.

Mum, Wendy Whimper, 25, said Desmond likes to wave at the binmen every week, and then "he goes and does that in front of his face".

But now Wigan Council has said the binman will not be working for its contractor again after the video went viral.
The incident on Tuesday (January 26), captured on CCTV shows the binman, who has not been named, a Mr Iain Thornley, first kicking the snowman's head off.

He then kicked it thirty five more times, before walking off laughing whilst shouting, "I KNOW EVERYBODY. ME".
Bob Jobsworth of Wigan Council said:“We are aware of this incident and are disappointed that an individual representing the council would behave in such a manner.
"The employee was a member of agency staff working on behalf of one of the council’s contractors, and he has been informed that he will not be used again.

"Information has also been circulated to all agency employees outlining the professional standards they are expected to uphold when representing a Wigan Council contractor.”

Miss Whimper added neighbours' children helped to build the snowman, while maintaining strict social distancing.
