A Mundesley man believes he has devised an easy way to help delivery drivers during the coronavirus pandemic.

Terry Conquest said: “It’s a simple way of slightly easing the pressure on the good folk who are delivering goods and letters during these testing times.

“Half way up my drive I have placed a cleaned and sterilised waste bin with a remote bell-push attached to the lid so that delivery folk can put parcels and letters in it or by it, if they are bulky and simply ring the bell to notify us of the delivery.

“There is no reason why groceries cannot be delivered to the side of the bin in a similar fashion.”

He added: “We are full-time carers for young adults with learning difficulties or disabilities so it is vital that we keep safe. This is probably one such way that we can ensure social distancing.”
