Ironing out the M1

Turning tragedy into triumph, this extreme house husband used the empty lanes of the M1 to get his Sunday best ironed to perfection.

Looking the part in a fetching dressing gown, the mystery man was recorded by a cameraman covering the recent M1 closure on Monday morning

The M1 has been closed since last Friday due to a scrapyard fire that took firemen hours to put out.

A Highways Agency spokesman said: “We are working as fast as we can to reopen the road as soon as it is safe to do so.” However, structural analysts have reported that parts of the M1 are simply beyond repair.
