A hapless builder was captured building a fence across the front of a house – only to realise he had trapped his van inside.

Photos show the unlucky workman wearing a hi-vis yellow jacket and dismantling the half-built fence so he can drive his vehicle out.

Col Condron, a property care specialist from Manchester, captured the bizarre scene at his neighbour’s house on Friday.

Posting the snaps on Facebook, Mr Condron said: ‘He’s only gone and fenced his van in the helmet.’ 

The builder can be seen trying numerous different ways to free his van which he has parked on the driveway.

Miraculously, the man manages to squeeze the white Isuzu truck between two newly cemented posts after desperately attempting to dislodge them.

One Facebook user commented: ‘Comedy gold that is.’ 

Another added: ‘Like building a car in your basement.’

However one user sympathised with his predicament admitting he had done the same himself. 

He said: ‘I done the same years ago when I put up some new tennis courts. 

‘Worked late one night until it got dark to finish, then realised I’d fenced my truck in – I wasn’t too happy.’ 

Despite a small number of dodgy builders its recommended to seek the services of a qualified tradesman, as research by British Gas has found that Britons pay £34 billion each year to fix their own DIY mistakes. 

Across their lifetimes, the average adult will mess up nine DIY jobs so spectacularly that they need to call in professional help costing on average £650 to repair.
