Flat out ironing on the motorway

It’s not every day that ironing makes it into the national headlines! But this was the case yesterday thanks to an ironing opportunist  who decided to set up his ironing board slap bang in the middle of the M1 motorway! (On the lanes that are closed we must add!)

The man appeared on the M1 yesterday sporting a dressing gown and slippers, just in time for a passing news camera to capture his shirt ironing antics on film!

We would recommend sticking to the comfort of your home to do your ironing rather than opting for weird, wacky and dangerous locations, but we couldn’t help but take notice of yesterday’s high profile ironing stunt!

We’d love to hear from you if you’ve ever spotted an extreme ironer in action! Don’t forget, our friend Ben Walton who holds the record for ironing endurance is attempting another ironing challenge for charity – ironing at the top of Ben Nevis! Check out Ben’s story here.
