I would like to express my gratitude to a kind, generous Abingdon fireman who, while off duty, stopped to help me at the side of the Oxford ring road.

In the pouring rain last Friday I was attempted to change a blown tyre to no avail and was miraculously saved by this kind-hearted man.

I was in quite a state and so relieved someone local was willing and good enough to help me.

Unfortunately I did not ask this kind man’s name and so would like to ask the Oxford Mail to commend his efforts on my behalf.
