Dublin: 4 °C Saturday 4 December, 2021

A group of Derry lads heroically tried to save this sinking ice cream van

The real life ice cream float.

ICE CREAM MEN (and indeed, ladies) made a killing over the past few days.

One guy was doing so well, he forgot to get himself off the beach before the tide came in

Spotted on Downhill Beach in Derry, this 99-dispenser had to get a rake of people to help him get out.

Oh dear.

It looks like a tractor was soon employed to pull out the ice cream float

It’s not the first time this has happened and it won’t be the last.

Remember this chap in Donegal?
