I WOULD just like to thank the very kind gentleman who got my car going again after I had broken down in Birkenhead Market car park on Wednesday morning.

This saved me a lot of bother having to call out my breakdown service provider, and has truly restored my faith in an act of human kindness and consideration.

The gentleman’s name was Stanley Matthews.

Just wondering if he was related to the great football legend himself, as this man is certainly worthy of the title "Sir".
