I was on my own and my car broke down on Lodge Lane in Grays.

At this point I was in panic mode as traffic was slowing down behind me.

I got out of the car and tried to push it into a safe area into nearby Nutberry Avenue. At this point two young men appeared in a van and very kindly told me to stop and hang on and they both got my car into a safe place while I waited for the RAC.

I doubt if these young men read your letters page, but you never know, maybe their parents do. If so they should be proud!

A big thank you to you both, words cannot express how grateful I was to you both.
