POLICE were called to help a man in Murcia who got stuck inside a rubbish bin. Residents called the authorities when they heard a voice coming from inside the street bin in the city.
Police believe he climbed in thinking it contained clothes he could take. Officers said they expected an accomplice would have been with him to keep watch but ran off when he got stuck. The 48-year-old, from Romania, had a track record of stealing clothes from containers but on this occasion chose the wrong bin.
Municipal workers had to open the bin manually to free him.
