Three bin men came to the rescue when a resident in Brownlow Crescent, Pinchbeck, couldn’t start her car due to a flat battery.
Refuse collectors Diesel Baily, Shane Barnes and Marc Surman pushed her car onto the road and then jump started it for her.
The grateful resident posted her thanks on social media on Monday, saying: “Many thanks to the refuse collectors of Brownlow Crescent. You helped a woman in distress this morning so I would like to give you a mention on here.”
A South Holland District Council spokesman told us: “She said they were her knights in green armour.”
