Jobless man stages phone box protest in Hull city centre
A Jobless man has decided to take matters into his own hands by staging a plea for work from a city centre telephone box.
Daniel Bird, 21, of Boulevard, has been unemployed since a family trauma caused him to leave his job in customer service some months ago.
He is now willing to take any position, however, as he does not want to continue on the dole.
Clutching a hand-printed sign that reads: "Save me from the dole! Gizza job. I am literally choosing between food and bills. I would rather be dead", Mr Bird has vowed to continue his silent protest until he gains employment.

Despite being challenged by the police to move on, he said: "I am coming back here every day until someone listens to my pleas.
"I do not want to be on Jobseekers any longer and am prepared to do anything."
Mr Bird positioned himself on top of the telephone box on the corner of Queen's Gardens. He says he is going to be there for as long as it takes to find work.
