Recently, a resident in a UK neighbourhood, woke up to an entire procession of ice cream trucks. Hasan, an ice-cream seller aged 62, had passed away and the trucks had joined their colleague’s funeral procession to pay a heartfelt tribute to him.
He had been selling ice creams for over 40 years in south-east London.
The resident shared a video on Twitter which is now viral.
