LETTER: Thanks to my car break-down Good Samaritan

On Monday, May 21st, I was unfortunate to have my car break down after visiting Clitheroe.

When I phoned the recovery service I was told it could be a two-hour wait.

I was on the very busy and narrow ‘A’ road that bypasses Whalley village. I decided I could not leave the car as there was nowhere to go.

After about 15 minutes, as I sat waiting, a car drew up behind me.

The driver got out and came to ask if I was all right and could he help?

I said I was fine and that I was waiting for the recovery service as I thought it was my clutch that had given up.

It was 12-30 pm, lunchtime, but I was all right. I had phoned a good friend who was on her way to be with me as I waited.

He just told me to take care and drove away.

My friend arrived and we chatted and she cheered me up, when the same man arrived again.

He came over to my car and handed me a bottle of water and a cheese barmcake, saying: “I could not leave you sitting there for all that time with nothing!”

He then drove off, after telling me he lived in Clitheroe.

May I say a big thank you to the “Knight in shining armour” who was so kind.

I did thank my friend too for coming to keep me company. The time passed so quickly and I am now back on the road again.
