South Yorkshire Police today laid down "make sure you get home safe after a night out" ‪advice after the incident.

They said: This man didn't make it to his own bed and decided a road would be more comfortable.

"PSCOs from Barnsley West LPT came across a man asleep in the middle of the road in Darton, still clutching his takeaway box after a night out.

"They woke him up and helped him to his feet, and on his way he went, leaving a silhouette behind after a short downpour".
