Picture of the Week: Going white for Linda

A white van man not afraid to bare his heart  

 

After a mixed response to our last picture of the week, taken from the Mail Online and featuring a “whingeing Brit” pensioner named Pamela Burbery, today we have chosen a more positive image from the very same title.

 

This week’s image is of another typically British sight, a white van. “White Van Man – The scourge of the road” was a description van drivers were christened with in 1997 by Jonathan Leake, the then transport editor of The Sunday Times, who described them as “the most feared driver on the road.”

 

The white VW van left on a roundabout in County Durham

White Van Man has never been considered a particularly sensitive chap but his image may have changed this week when the Mail Online featured an image of a VW van left on the George Reynolds Industrial Estate in County Durham decorated with the following:

 

Linda I’m sorry

I’m a fool and an idiot sometimes.

I love you with all my heart!

Please come home and put this right

We miss you!! I miss us.

I want to grow old with you.

Will you marry me?

Here is a White Van Man with a heart but even with their resources, the Mail Online did not manage to find out the identity of the driver prior to publication.

 

We very much hope Linda and her mystery man are reunited.
