I fell over in Honiton High Street, adjacent to Somerfield supermarket. I hit my head sufficiently to draw blood and also hurt my arm and elbow. I was in some distress and a young man in a white van stopped to offer his help. He was so concerned that he insisted on seeing me to my home safely - not leaving until I was sure I was alright. I would also like to thank the lady who gave me some "wet wipes" to staunch the flow of blood. They truly were good Samaritans. I only regret that, in my confusion, I did not get their names. However, if they see this and it "rings a bell", I say again many thanks and I hope that you both had a lovely Christmas Valerie KiddSilver Street Honiton
