At around 16:30 this afternoon, as team vehicles had returned to our Ladybridge Hall Base/HQ following the numerous incidents during the day, we were approached by a member of the public whose car was stuck on ice at the bottom of Ladybridge Lane, which is the road adjacent to our base.
The gentleman was visiting Bolton from Wales and had unfortunately taken a wrong turn down the lane and had become stuck fast in a rut by the side of the road.
Team members took down our BM1 Landrover and pulled the car out of the rut, and such was the condition of the road it was nessecary to tow the car back to the top of the hill.
As a kind gesture of thanks, the gentleman made an on-the-spot £10 donation to the team. We wish him a safe (and slightly less eventful) journey back home!
