A BIN LORRY-MAD boy from Rosyth got a special treat last week when a team from Fife Council stopped off to show off their big yellow truck.

Little Harris Battrick waits out on the street outside his Peasehill Brae home every week to wave at the binmen who always give him a wave and a beep of the horn.

They discovered it was the youngster's second birthday on Tuesday and showed up to make his day.

Mum Laura said: "Harris goes out and stands every Tuesday from nursery. He gets his wee hi-vis on and stands on the street for the binmen coming. They wave and they beep the horn.

"It was Fife Council's idea to do the whole thing. They wanted to bring the lorry down and had a jigsaw puzzle for him and he got to sit in the driver's seat. He was so excited."

Fife Council said Harris gives the local binmen a "very warm welcome" and was "without doubt their biggest fan".

A spokesperson added: "He might still have a few more years to go until he can be a binman himself but when the crew heard that it was his second birthday, they arranged for a special stop-off to give him a go in the driving seat! Happy birthday Harris!"
