Polio victim Albert Henshaw and his wife, Judy, who suffers from brittle bone disease, received three telephone calls identifying the Honiton men after we reported last week how they used a 4 x 4 vehicle to tow the Henshaws' Mobility car home to Dunkeswell.
"One of the three calls was from one of the men," said Mr Henshaw. "He is called Tom and he is a landscaper.
"It was great to get a response so quickly and to be able to thank them properly."
