Burly lads on a night out LIFT car out of tram’s way after driver parks on the line

This is the moment a group of friends on a night out were met with rapturous applause as they lugged a car off tram tracks.

Onlooker Charlotte McEvoy recorded the footage on Saturday night on West Street in Sheffield city centre.

She filmed the burly men as they worked together to lift the Ford Fiesta out of the tram’s way after the car driver parked on the line.

In the clip, the men can be seen rolling up their sleeves and huddling around the white 1.0 litre car after the tram came to a stop directly behind it.

Charlotte can be heard behind the camera shouting in disbelief: ‘Are you going to lift it? No!’

The men then grab hold of the bodywork at the rear of the car and begin hauling it away from the track.

The crowd that has gathered to watch cheers as Charlotte shouts: ‘No f***ing way man. No way. Get the front, get the front guys.’

The group reposition themselves to the front of the vehicle as they once again work together to move the obstruction.

Then, having succeeded, they nonchalantly walk away to carry on their night out.

Charlotte later said: ‘The poor tram lady was stuck for about five minutes with traffic behind her before the guys moved the car.’

She claimed the driver of the car was picking her friend up from a bar and was confronted by other revellers when she left later on.

Fortunately for the driver, the car was not damaged whilst being moved.

Social media users were quick to comment on the feat as one wrote: ‘Didn’t know the Hulk lived in Sheffield.’

Another added: ‘Don’t need the recovery truck.’

And a third simply said: ‘What thoughtful lads.’
