A man selling hand sanitiser gel for £100 a bottle has ironically been crushed to death under an industrial pallet of it.

Nathaniel Fuch-Weet entered his local Aldi and bought the remaining 2400 bottles this morning, and the tragic accident happened on the way back to his car.

It is thought that Mr Fuch-Weet was stockpiling the product to then flog it on eBay.

A number of local parents of children with immune system conditions and life-threatening illnesses stood around and laughed for a few minutes before finally calling the emergency services and robbing him blind before they arrived.

One said, ‘To be fair, he was probably going to use whatever he didn’t sell for a Coronavirus-free hand shandy at home.’
