Pictures: Exeter bins on holiday in Hungary

Following the story our users have been sending in their own images of City Council bins spotted abroad.

How the large wheeled bin got to the far-flung corner of Europe is a mystery but it is thought they could be all over the globe.
For Robert Norley, the city's assistant director for environment, missing wheeled bins is a serious subject – and an expensive problem. He revealed that almost 700 go missing every year.
He said: "The bins are always the property of the city council, but perhaps some people are not aware of that. "People who move house sometimes take them with them, and we have reports￼ of 695 a year going missing.
