This adorable footage shows the moment a rubbish truck-obsessed three-year-old clapped to thank his local bin men as they made their usual collection despite the Covid-19 crisis.

Proud Sheona Emmott, 29, filmed the heart-warming clip after son Noah, three, asked if he could cheer for the key workers as they came to pick up the rubbish last Monday [March 30].

The stay-at-home mum-of-one, from Nelson, Lancs, said her ‘kind-hearted’ tot is so obsessed with their street’s refuse collectors he normally goes out to say hello and offer to help.

But after clapping for NHS workers last Thursday and understanding he couldn’t go outside due to the coronavirus lockdown, Noah asked if he could applaud them from the family’s living room window instead.
