Five drunk men stunned town officials by putting their liquid strength to good use and fixing a bike rack that had gone unrepaired for weeks.

The sauced Good Samaritans decided to do a random bit of beautification while standing around the Market Place in Boston, Lincolnshire at 3 AM.

"Young people often get a bad press and this shows there are some who want to contribute to their society and do the right thing," said Boston Borough Council member Stephen Woodliffe, who called the CCTV footage "remarkable."


"It shows young people acting in a very positive and constructive manner and shows they have a good and responsible attitude to what's happening in their town," he continued. "Their actions were very public spirited and impressive."

According to Woodliffe, the bike rack was damaged in a car accident and was slated to be repaired, but the council had yet to get around to it before the drunk do-gooders stepped up and fixed it themselves.
