Listen boss, when we asked for a rise..

A PUBLICITY stunt for an anti-graffiti squad backfired after a cherry picker broke down - leaving two council workers stranded 40ft for two hours.

Edinburgh Council invited journalists to Leith, where they were launching a big clean-up.

But a mechanical fault left two "specialist cleansing staff" stranded high above the streets before they could get to work.

The event in Duke Street was scrapped as the two unnamed men waited to be rescued by another cherry picker.

The team are to remove graffiti, stickers, posters and cable ties from buildings, bus stops, lamp posts, phone boxes and post boxes.
