LAST week, I woke up with a horrible nose bleed which was so serious that I had to call 999.

As the emergency services were not able to attend straight away due to the amount of pressure on ambulances, I ordered a taxi from JR Taxis in Leigh.

I asked to go to the cash machine but the driver Indra was not bothered about taking any money from me and took me straight to the hospital.

He was also not bothered about the blood which was pouring out from my mouth or nose all over the taxi.

I have never experienced such compassion from a taxi driver nor someone who has a car which was potentially going to get covered in blood.

To be more concerned about a complete stranger’s health is truly amazing and just goes to show there really are people out there willing to go above and beyond.

It has completely restored my faith in humanity.
