Removing old kernels / boot volume is low on space

I occasionally get a warning message, notifying me that my boot volume is low on space.

I have not found a way of removing old kernels automatically, and I've yet to script it, so for now this is just a reminder for me of what to do.

Check which kernels are installed

dpkg --list | grep linux-image

Remove the kernels I no longer want

apt remove --purge [name of kernel from list generated using the command above]
