My brother phoned me ten minutes or so ago. He tells me he's accidentally reversed his loaded HGV into a ditch in the middle of Saddleworth Moor. Apparently the trailer wheels have started to sink into the bog, and the rear wheels of his tractor unit have been lifted about two feet off the ground on one side, possibly resulting in a badly twisted chassis. Needless to say, this is not good. However, he was telling me that any number of people driving past have stopped to ask him if he's ok, and one person drove past, went to their house and brought him back some sandwiches. Someone else stopped and gave him a flask of tea. Is it just me, or do others find this quite heartwarming? With any luck it'll be some consolation for him if he loses his job tomorrow.
