An angry bin man sought revenge on a driver who parked his car in his working area by blocking him in his space with 40 bins.

The bizarre stunt saw the worker completely block the driver in his space with a maze of rubbish bins, leaving the driver with a challenge to get out.

According to the Metro newspaper, the incident happened in China's Anhui province and an onlooker is believed to have filmed the bizarre event rather than attempt to stop his actions.

According to reports, the garbage worker had tried to get in touch with the driver, who had parked in his way in the rubbish collection area before going on his weird rant, and it is not known as to why he didn't leave a note or wait until the driver was back rather than make the effort of blocking him in.

Moet & Chandon have introduced a new personalised service in celebration of the festive period.

The long-standing luxury goods company have launched the customising option exclusively to Selfridges stores in London, Birmingham and Manchester, as well as online.

The service enables customers to vamp up their Christmas gifts for their loved ones by uploading a photograph of their nearest and dearest to the bottles.

As if that wasn't enough they are also offering an in-store gift wrapping service where shoppers can design their very own unique wrapping paper to conceal the present - perfect for those last-minute shoppers.

The festive lovers have also ensured they give their customers a choice of gifts as they have also introduced a Bursting Bubbles Christmas collection, which allows customers to purchase mini Moet crackers containing a small bottle of bubbly, as well as a limited edition imperial Moet gift box with an impressive stand out 3D design.

Coronation Street's feisty Becky McDonald has been voted the favourite soap star the public want to see return to their screens.

The reckless character, which is played by actress Katherine Kelly, in the ITV soap has been recognised as the most missed star from the nation's favourite programmes, according to new research from WhichBingo, who polled over 1,000 Brits.

The survey has also shown 'EastEnders' fictional character Grant Mitchell, played by Ross Kemp, and the outspoken Janice Battersby, played by Vicky Entwistle, in 'Coronation Street' were runners up in the research.

The voters also told of the characters they haven't missed seeing, including Lorraine Chase who played 'Emmerdale's Steph Stokes, followed by Nathalie Emmanuel's Sasha Valentine in 'Hollyoaks.'

Simon Jones, commercial director at WhichBingo, said:

"Our personal favourite, however, is former Eastender Peggy Mitchell and we are thrilled to have a personalised message from Jackpot Joy's Queen of Bingo herself Barbara Windsor, following her departure from Albert Square earlier this year."

Children prefer their parent's company more than presents at Christmas.

A study undertaken by Butlin's has collated the top 25 things children most desire on the festive day, and their research has proved an unexpected 65 per cent of children would rather spend quality time with their family instead of receiving gifts, because it is the only period of time they got to spend with their relatives.

And the children have even voted on getting into the Christmas spirit by decorating their Christmas trees, visit Father Christmas and watch films over having a new toy.

Speaking about the results of the survey, the managing director of Butlin's, Dermot King, said: "Our research shows that - far from wanting expensive treats - time with parents and loved ones puts a festive grin on their faces, showing that kids really understand the true meaning of Christmas."
