Up late last night lads?

Contractors asleep on the roof of Cardinal Newman High
Contractors asleep on the roof of Cardinal Newman High

Contractors carrying out maintenance at Cardinal Newman High in Bellshill were caught napping after being spotted sleeping on the job yesterday (Tuesday) morning.

The eagle eyed Speaker reader who snapped the skivers catching up on some kip on the school roof said: “The council spends a small fortune on this school every year because of the amount of glass and flat roofs that it has.

“So you can imagine when tax payers like myself see three workmen sleeping on the roof for over 90 minutes it makes me very angry that they think they can get away with it.”

North Lanarkshire Council was less then impressed when shown the photograph.

A spokesman said: “We would like to thank the Speaker for bringing this to our attention and we will be contacting the contractor demanding an explanation for this behaviour.”
