The Mirror is never one to stray from the rules, at least not since those photos, and introduces readers to 96-year-old Lenny Woodward.

Binmen in Norwich have refused to empty Mr Woodward’s bin because he has two glass jars in it , one Nescafe coffee and one tomato ketchup.

Lenny is aghast. His daughter is “absolutely furious”.
