VIDEO: Partying Boston youths turn Good Samaritan to fix bike rack
A group of lads enjoying a night out in Boston stunned CCTV operators when they used brute strength to repair a damaged bike rack.
A gang of revellers noticed a large metal bike stand, close to a takeaway shop on South Street, was bent out of shape.
The large hoop had been knocked almost flat after a car had run into it previously.
But the group put down their takeaway food cartons and heaved the large hoop back into shape.

Boston Borough Council officials recorded the scene as it unfolded, at around 3am on August 30.
The CCTV shows more of the group joining in and wrestling for almost 15 minutes to straighten the bike stand.
Some of the men can they be seen high-fiving each other and shaking hands.
Peter Hunn, Boston Borough Council's principal community safety officer, said: "We recorded the whole sequence.
“At first two lads had a go and then encouraged others to help.
“At one point five were pushing and pulling.
“To look at the bike rack now you would hardly know it had been damaged.”
He added: "The night-time economy is not all about bad lads doing bad things."
