Appeal made for driver to come forward

Have your say

A Bury St Edmunds driver is searching for a Good Samaritan who helped him out last Thursday evening.

Philip Brigden, 82, was driving back to Bury from Newmarket at around 11pm when he drew into Asda petrol station in Western Way as he was running out of fuel.

When he got to the pumps he discovered they did not take cash.

Mr Brigden asked the driver who was filling up in front of him whether he could help him out and gave him £15 and asked him to put the fuel onto his card payment which he did.

“I started to fill the car with deisel but the pump kept filling my car and I ended up with £73.76 on this poor chap’s card

“I’ve spent his money and would like to contact him to pay him back.

“I thought the pump would automatically cut out when it reached the amount I’d given him but it kept on going.

Mr Brigden added: ”He was a young man in his mid 20s I would say and an extremely kind fellow. I really would like to get in touch with him so I can pay him back and reward him for his help.”

Mr Brigden would like the driver to contact Asda and they will put him in touch.
