A fresher stole the bins on Colum Road last night and took them back to his flat

He sung ‘Hello’ by Lionel Richie as he did it

Last night a drunken fresher in a Christmas jumper stole six bins on his way home.

The thief walked up Colum Road at 12.22am singing Hello by Lionel Richie.

He made his escape down North Road and took the bins into his flat.

A picture of the bins was posted on YikYak.

Someone living on Colum Road said the prankster was wearing a Christmas jumper with a Snowman on the front.

Ryan Morris, who lives on Colum Road, had his food caddy in the midnight raid.

He said: “I’m shocked, I can’t believe someone would do that.

“I’m so violated, how are we meant to put our rubbish out.

“I would appreciate their return, if not it’s more food for the gulls.”
