A man has been branded "a legend" after blocking a speed camera with a bright pink umbrella.
His daughter filmed from the safety of the car as he strolled over towards the yellow van with his brolly under his arm.
Moments later he pings it open and tries to line it up in an apparent bid to block the camera's view of the road.
But realising he may not be having the effect he wanted, he took a few steps closer and ended up right next to the van and its camera.
According to the North West Evening Mail the van's camera operator was not impressed and called police to get the man to move.
