SOUTHAMPTON Airport staff have become the latest victims of the charity ice bucket dumping craze sweeping the planet.

They received a nomination from Inghams to take part in the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge.

Members of the operations and fire service joined support staff to be doused a bucket of freezing ice water over their heads, joining millions of others including Tom Cruise, Will Smith and George W. Bush - and the Daily Echo's Michael Carr - which can be viewed here.

The bone shivering stunt is to raise funds and awareness for a condition known as Lou Gehrig's Disease.

After donating the team decided to nominate local football club Southampton FC, their colleagues at Bournemouth Airport and locally born Radio 1 DJ Scott Mills.

Can I just remind everyone that whilst this is a fun thing to do for some, there are millions of families who would be grateful just to have that fresh water you're chucking over yourselves.

That is a valid point and one I haven't previously thought of. I am also getting rather bored of this bucket challenge. Some might call me a killjoy, but I have better things to do with my life (including other ways of fund raising).
