Roofing chancer

Spotted in Leicester, UK, last week, a roofer or roof washer, taking some amazing risks as he prepared to work on a roof some six to eight metres in the air.

First of all he climbs up a three section ladder with a large bucket, then having already placed two roofing ladders on the steeply inclined roof, he steps from the main ladder to one of the roof ladders and climbs up to the roof apex. He then passes one of the roof ladders over to the other side and looks as though he is in danger of touching overhead lines with his aluminium ladder as he does so.

He moves the ladder to the other side of the roof.... watch those overhead lines


Down on the ground a wheelie bin and his van act are used for traffic management , however he is parked on yellow lines (No parking during working hours) during the day and using his van and a wheely bin as a traffic management system.
