Sir Rod Stewart picked up a shovel to repair potholes near his home after complaining that no one else could “mind it” and his Ferrari couldn’t drive down the road.
The 77-year-old veteran rock star shared a video on his Instagram of himself and a team shoveling gravel from a truck into a large number of potholes in an area of Harlow, Essex.
Sir Rod explained that he decided to deal with the matter himself after an ambulance had a blown tire and other cars were “jumping up” due to road damage.
My Ferrari can’t get through here at allMr. Rod Stewart
In a video shared to Instagram, he can be seen wearing a tracksuit and a turtleneck as he sings and shovels gravel and says: “I’m repairing the street where I live because no one may disturb that. ”
In another clip, he demonstrates the extent of the damage and adds: “This is the condition of the road near where I live in Harlow and it’s been like this for years.
“People are banging their cars up. The other day, there was an ambulance with a blown tire. My Ferrari can’t get through here at all.
“So me and the boys thought we were going to come and do it ourselves. We are filling the gaps while millions and millions of pounds have already been spent on the M11.”
He captioned the post: “Working for a living, filling holes is good for the soul!”
The singer received praise from followers for his effort, including his daughters Kimberly and Ruby, who commented with hearts and clapped emojis. .
