The future is here: Lincoln man delivers toilet roll by drone

Special delivery incoming!

Toilet roll could soon become hot currency, and this Lincolnshire man is trying to stay ahead of the curve during self-isolation.

In these tough times, people are in need of hygiene facilities as well as a bit of respite.

Tom Gibson has taken matters into his own hands (not literally) and decided to fly his drone with toilet paper attached to it.

Tom’s partner Cheryl told The Lincolnite: “I didn’t know he did it until he got a lot of views and cheered a lot of people up, it’s much needed right now!”

Could this be the new delivery method for the coronavirus outbreak? It appears to take social distancing to the next level.
