Kebab shop reward for Boston's bike rack benders
BOSTON’S famous bike rack benders received certificates of commendation from Boston’s Mayor for their services.
Friends Dean Mason, 23, Martin Griggs, 24, Simon McMillan, 23, Dan Butler, 23, and Jordan Doughty were then treated to kebabs and champagne at the Boston Delight takeaway shop, right next to the scene of their exploits.
The five became a world-wide internet sensation when Boston Borough Council released CCTV footage of their 3am efforts to mend a broken bike rack.
They were presented with certificates of commendation by Boston Mayor Councillor Paul Kenny at a full meeting of council on Monday night.

Councillor Kenny said the lads had shown they were public-spirited, portrayed Boston in a good light to the world and raised a smile in the borough and across the planet.
He then asked the lads if they had any other missions in mind?
Councillor Kenny said: “You are not sure what you are going to do for your next trick, but before you do come and have a word with us first.”
A council CCTV operator recorded their activities on a town centre camera when they set about the metal bicycle rack. They used their muscle to unbend the previously-damaged thick metal hoop which had been twisted almost down to the ground.
They wrestled for 13 minutes to straighten the stand, taking great care to be sure, once they got it moving, that they got it perfectly upright.
Since the video footage was released it has gone viral, being viewed by around three million people.
The lads said they had been astounded at the fame they had achieved for doing something which began as “a bit of a laugh.”
