The builders cooled down by turning their dumper truck into a mini pool
Don’t you hate it when it’s hot outside and you’re stuck at work? Yes, us too.
Most of us just have to grin and bear it – because it’s not like you can go swimming while you’re on the clock… right?
Wrong. Or at least it is if you’re a builder named Steve Moran.
The 47-year-old and his colleague Alex Williams, 33, were filling up their truck’s bucket with water to cool down newly laid concrete when they decided that, actually, they would quite like to go for a swim on their lunch break.
So instead of letting the liquid flow out onto the concrete as planned, the inspired builders stripped off to their boxers and jumped in.

With the Devon countryside in the background, the pair joked it was like an ‘infinity pool’ – and even had their rubber duck mascot ‘Edward’ bobbing alongside them.
The pair, who have been working on industrial units in Plympton, Devon, for three months, said it took around two hours to fill the bucket, which was eight foot off the ground.
Steve said: ‘Who needs Ibiza when you have your very own pool!
‘As you can see we had a dumper truck there and we were going to lay concrete so we needed to fill it with water.
‘We filled it up and thought “hang on, that’s not going straight out” and we got in. It was lovely getting in.
They took selfies in the hot weather
‘Me and Alex both stripped off to our boxers and jumped straight in without hesitation. It was lovely – a breath of fresh air compared to the heat.
