Filling in time before taking up a sculpture course, Paul Smyth was
recruited to drive a Nappy Express van serving households in Liverpool
It went pretty smoothly until he had to visit a dodgy Liverpool housing
estate. Spooked by visions of Uzi-toting crack-heads, Smyth dropped off
the goods and accelerated away. Unfortunately he’d left the van doors
open, so dozens of nappies spilled into the road. Suddenly the street
was full of residents looting the unexpected freebies. ’I tried to
grapple with a few locals, but I lost half the stock,’ Smyth admits.
It’s a tough job, but somebody has to do it.
