THIS is the hilarious moment a recycling bin seems to have taken on a life of its own on the Costa del Sol.

“It’s a Dalek in disguise,” one social media user wrote.

“Brilliantly, it even turns right at the end of the road,” said another.

Six people in Spain have died so far as more extreme weather is being felt in the north of the country.
