A BIG "thank-you" to all the drivers who stopped to make sure we were okay when our vehicle broke down, on a dangerous bend in the dark on Brimstage Road on Wednesday evening.

Thanks especially to the solicitor who gave my wife a lift to hospital.

An electrical fault meant my hazard warning lights wouldn't work and this created a potentially dangerous situation.  

The police and breakdown services were on the scene fairly quickly to get us up and running again.

With all the depressing news in the media it's still nice to know there are many good Samaritans still around.

Rob and Karen Shaw, Irby
