A man celebrating his 40th birthday has been tied to a lamppost on Fontwell Roundabout on the A27.

Passers-by have managed to take a picture of the man, who has been there since about 10am.

The man is Wayne Price, director of NJS Brick Work and Scaffolding, and was put there by his colleagues to enjoy his 40th birthday in style.

Kevin Hogben, a colleague, said: “Every one was just surprised he wasn’t older.”

Mr Price will be untied in time to go and celebrate with colleagues this evening.
