The video was posted by a machinery company which shows how its mower cuts "every type of grass, shrub, heather and rushes".

"So when you arrive home and realise your hubbys [sic] video has more views than any of mine," said Upper Bann MLA Lockhart.

"If anyone sees him in a new Major coat (XS), body warmer, hat and overalls you will soon come to realise what Major give in return for the video."
