Man Ironing On The M1

The closure of the M1 this week caused misery for thousands, although one man saw the funny side to this and decided to do his ironing in the middle lane of the motorway.

The closure of the M1 this week caused misery for thousands, although one man saw the funny side to this and decided to do his ironing in the middle lane of the motorway.

The unidentified man was wearing a dressing gown and slippers, when he decided to do some ‘extreme’ ironing at 9am on Monday morning. Traffic heading north bound couldn’t beleive their eyes, as the man ironed his white shirt on the closed southbound section of the M1 motorway. The video was filmed by an ITN news reporter who was covering the M1 closure.

The video is available for viewing on the right.
 

How did he plug the iron in?

Sweet!

Yes, but... how did he keep his iron hot. I can't see an electrical plug, nor can I imagine one in the middle of the highway. I've tried ironing with a cool iron, and frankly it doesn't work too well. So the idea that you'd get a nicely ironed shirt seems nonsensical.

Lollol

Well, what do you say.?! We all had a good laugh at work today with this. Thanks Motoring.co.uk
