Aberdeen resident William Middleton got his head stuck in a bin while “looking for [his] hat”.

Middleton was finally cut free by firefighters after spending 20 minutes, head-first, in the bin.

“I couldn’t get my head out. It was shocking. It was stinking. I’m now known as bucket head,” said Middleton, speaking of the ordeal.

A number of people attempted to help Middleton but were unable to relieve him from the clutches of the receptacle.

“I walked around the corner and saw his walking stick on the ground and his bum sticking out and said ‘that’s Willie’,” said a witness.

“Me and my pals tried to pull him out but his ears were stuck.”

Middleton was not injured at all, but it remains unclear whether he has been reunited with the troublesome hat.

The messages are able to be sent in up to five different languages, and have a reported 90 per cent accuracy. But at $140 per unit, you’d have to hope these messages are sufficiently saucy.

The Messara Report on New Zealand Horse Racing

: My mum’s family loves a “flutter”.   A “flutter” is Kiwi slang for betting. Usually on horse racing, but we’re also partial to the odd greyhound meet or two. In April 2018, the Minister for Racing, Winston Peters, released the Messara report, calling for the clos
