We do the rounds with a Leicester milkman who has been disciplined by his dairy for singing and whistling on the job very early in the morning.

Watch him whistle on his rounds for our reporter Gareth Owen.
A milkman has been banned from whistling and singing as he delivers pints on his rounds after five residents complained.
Kevin Gifford told the Sun, his dairy bosses have issued him with a formal warning, and said: "A whistling milkman is part of British life but they want to stop it. It’s madness.”
Addressing the complaints, the 52-year-old said: “I think they were claiming breaching the peace or something ridiculous. They say I woke them up."
Kelvin Young, general manager of Kirby & West Dairy, confirmed Mr Gifford has been disciplined: "Kevin was asked to reduce the noise. Unfortunately he didn’t heed those warnings and we were left with no choice. I believe we were fair.”.
