The ultimate payback prank after a man was caught on camera fly-tipping unwanted tyres in Wigan has gone viral on social media.
The fly-tipping incident – which is understood to have taken place on farmland in the wider Wigan area – saw a man empty a large number of unwanted car tyres out of a van and onto the private land, before driving off under the assumption that no one had seem him.
He was however caught on video by what is believed to be the security camera of an opposite property.
Sharing pictures and video footage of the prank in a now viral post on Facebook yesterday afternoon, Megan Baldwin said comically that after the man “didn’t come back” for his tyres, they decided to step in and “help [him] out” by returning them directly to his front door.
To make the revenge that little bit sweeter as well, it turns out that they were also needing to dispose of a large quantity of unused tyres themselves and so added to the perpetrator’s collection.
Karma at its finest.
The post has understandably received widespread attention online since yesterday evening, going on to amass well over 9.5K interactions, 10K shares and thousands of comments from members of the public heaping praise onto those dishing out the payback.
Many have branded the prank “brilliant” and “the best thing [they’ve] seen all week”, with one Facebook user aptly commenting they are “so glad the tyres were returned to their rightful owner”.
There has also been numerous calls in the comments section of the post asking to see a follow-up video as they “need to see his face” upon his return home, but according to neighbours who witnessed the prank take place, the fly-tipper was actually inside the property when the tyres were emptied from the truck and into his front garden.
This is sure to mean he has learned his lesson if nothing else.
The act of fly-tipping – which is defined as the “illegal deposit of any waste onto land that does not have a licence to accept it” – is a serious criminal offence for which you can be prosecuted and thus receive fines of up to £50,000, deprived vehicle rights, or face imprisonment.
Recently-released statistics show that fly-tipping has soared immensely since lockdown began
Some areas of Greater Manchester have even reported seeing the number of fly-tipping incidents rise by a massive 70% and more over the past few months.
Bordering countryside, local beauty spots, green areas and open spaces have been a saving grace and a much-needed escape for many during what has been a tough and unexpected time in recent months.
Please remember to respect this Manchester, so that we can all continue to enjoy the surrounding beauty.
Coca-Cola confirms the Christmas Truck is coming to Manchester this weekend
Coca-Cola has finally confirmed the news we’ve all been waiting for… the Christmas Truck will be in Manchester this weekend.
December is here, the temperatures have plummeted outside, and the ‘most wonderful time of the year’ is nearing closer and closer by the day – but it’s not Christmas until you’ve gone and got a Coca-Cola from the giant red van is it, right?
Well luckily, we won’t have to wait too much longer to get to do that once again.
The soft drinks company confirmed that ‘Holidays Are Coming’ a couple of weeks back, with the UK tour of the iconic Coca-Cola Christmas Truck now well underway, and having visited other major northern cities such as Leeds and Liverpool over the last few days.
And now, Coca-Cola has revealed that the legendary van is coming to Greater Manchester this weekend, and will be stopping off at the Trafford Centre for one day only.
The much-loved festive symbol will be arriving outside the shopping centre tomorrow (Saturday 2 December) from midday right through until 8pm to provide “the ultimate Christmas celebration”, with a whole host of activities planned for families of all ages.
The 2023 Coca-Cola Christmas Truck journey will be packed with “interactive experiences for visitors to immerse themselves in”.
Anyone who heads to the Trafford Centre from midday tomorrow will first be welcomed by a walk-in, snow-filled bauble that invites them to “step into a winter wonderland for the perfect holiday snapshot”, all before making a stop at the ‘Ho-Ho-Hoop Hut’ to take part in a fun festive game for the chance to win a selection of prizes – including meal-inspired rewards, and recycled Christmas tree decorations.
Families can then finish off the tour by posing for a memorable photo opportunity in front of the iconic Coca-Cola truck.
Visitors are welcome to listen to the Coca-Cola Christmas choir as they perform a set of carols too.
Fancy it then? If you’re ready to kick-start Christmas the right way, then make sure you get yourself down to the Trafford Centre from midday tomorrow.

Tesco has slashed the price of one-litre bottles of Baileys by more than 50%
Tesco has slashed the price of one-litre bottles of Baileys by more than 50%, and they’re now available to get your hands on for a limited time only.
With December officially here, and the festive season nearing closer by the day, most UK supermarkets are rolling out deals left, right, and centre to help shoppers save a few pennies during ‘the most wonderful time of the year’ as the cost of living crisis continues – and it seems like Tesco is absolutely no different.
That’s because the retailer has decided to knock a whopping £12 off the regular price of one-litre bottles of one of the best-loved Christmas tipples.
Fans of the classic Irish cream liqueur drink will probably want to run not walk to their nearest Tesco to stock up on Baileys ready for the big day to arrive, as big bottles of the festive favourite have been reduced from £22 right down to just £10, and are now available to fill your basket with.
But… there’s a bit of a catch (isn’t there always?)
Not only is the over half-price offer only available for a very limited time, and due to expire at the end of next week, but shoppers will only be able to buy the one-litre bottles at the impressive £10 price if they’re Tesco Clubcard customers.
You were probably expecting that’d be the case, right? The supermarket – which is well-known for the savings it offers via is loyalty card scheme all year round – is giving Clubcard users up until Monday 11 December to nip to their nearest branch or head online to the Tesco website and buy as many bottles of Bailey’s as they fancy.
As part of the supermarket’s commitment to “keep prices low” until the end of the year, stuffing, roast potatoes, cranberry sauce, and even tin foil have all seen their prices slashed as the retailer aims to help those struggling to cover costs.
