Regulars at The Portcullis bar can been watching the driver gently pulling his haul while motorists pass the man whose collection includes an old chair, strapped to the back of the trailer.

At the end of the ten second clip, a man can be heard off camera remarking: "F****** unbelievable."

The clip, uploaded to video sharing website YouTube is entitled "Rag n bone in barno" - but it is not clear if the man shown actually is a rag and bone man.
