An elderly woman left stranded in a park after her mobility scooter conked out wants to thank the mystery helpers who escorted her home.
Lillian Cusworth, 77, of King Harry Park, St Albans, was on her way back from the city centre on Wednesday when her the vehicle ran out of battery in Verulamium Park.
It was late afternoon and getting dark when two women first came to help but were unable to move the scooter themselves. Soon after, two of the park staff came to Lillian’s rescue, with one volunteering to push her all the way home.
The man then went on to help Lillian travel from the middle of the park all the way back to her flat on Wordsworth Close.
Lillian said: “I am so appreciative. He helped me all the way home and he chatted to me the whole time. He went beyond what he needed to do.
