A BARMAN endured a frosty start to the New Year after getting stuck in a refrigerator van for 45 minutes.
Matt Renard, 19, was working at Daventry Town Football Club when he got trapped with a colleague at 5am on New Year’s Day.
The van was being used for temporary storage space but Mr Renard became stuck after the key snapped in the lock of the van while he was inside.
Other colleagues tried to free the pair but eventually firefighters were called to bust the door open.
Mr Renard said: “We had gone in the back of the van to get some stuff and the door just closed behind us, luckily there were other people around. It was pretty cold but thankfully the freezer was switched off.”
