A binman has been sacked by his local council after he kung-fu kicked the head off a snowman whilst on duty.

The refuse operative was caught on CCTV appearing to deliver a roundhouse-style kick to the 6ft-tall creation on a footpath in front of a house.

He appears to casually deliver the right-footed blow while waiting for a bin to be emptied into the back of a refuse truck – afterwards returning the bin to its spot on the pavement.

The incident is reported to have happened in Hampton Rise, Hereford, following the weekend’s snowfall.

Mother Sophie Taylor, 25, said her three-year-old son Joseph had built the snowman.

She told the Hereford Times that the boy likes to wave at the binmen every week, and was shocked that the binman “goes and does that in front of his face”.

Herefordshire Council said it was “disappointed” by his conduct, adding he was an agency worker recruited to work for a council contractor, and was not directly employed by County Hall.
