'grits out' Man commandeers gritting truck in garage forecourt with bottle of Buckfast

The police later appeared to pour sand on the man's night out.

A man has been captured commandeering a gritting vehicle as it pulled into the forecourt of a filling station.

The man appears to be holding a bottle of Buckfast tonic wine as he launches into a jovial tirade from his pulpit on the rear of the vehicle.

Onlookers are heard chuckling in the background as the man continues to shout from the gritter.

The police are then seen arriving on the scene, talking the man down.

One social media user posted: 'He must be a member of the anti-grit movement!'
