A ROOFING company boss has been hailed a legend after surprising his entire workforce with a "Love Island" pool party and BBQ during the heatwave.
Stuart Houston gave all his staff a paid day off yesterday and put on a party in the carpark of the HG Roofing Supplies building in Leeds, West Yorkshire.
Staff turned up to find the managing director had laid out two pools, fold-up chairs, games, beers, a meat-filled BBQ and music for them all to enjoy.
Roofer Dylan Foster captured a video as he pulled into the yard expecting to be turning up to work on the 33°c day.
Video shows two pools filled with a variety of inflatable toys including flamingos and palm trees.
Burgers and sausages are shown sizzling away on a barbeque as the team enjoyed their extra day off.
