'Top lad' cleans up Wellington locals' infamous bomb spot

A video has been posted to a public Facebook group of a young man clearing rubbish from the infamous 'bomb spot' along the Wellington waterfront.

Nikora-jnr Chase, who first posted the video in the VicDeals Facebook group, says she did it so the 'top lad' got the recognition he deserved.

"The more people who see it the better I say."

This particular spot, located on Taranaki Wharf, is a favourite among locals.

The 'Welly Bomb Comp' has been held at the 'bomb spot' for the past two years. It invites fellow bombers to compete for the title of Welly Bomb King or Queen.

The video received a positive response, and multiple Facebook commenters thanked the young man for cleaning up the rubbish.

One woman commented in the public Facebook group that the man in the video was her good friend, and he had been "humbled" by the positive comments the post had received.

"His daily motto is to do good deeds every day, this acknowledgment has made him feel that his deeds are worth it."

Other users wanted to personally thank the man for his act of kindness, with one commenter writing, "there's a beer in your fridge with your name on it."

One commenter put it simply, "it's a shame there are not more like you."
