CRIME: Devastated that my helper became victim

When I looked at the Spalding Guardian on January 17 I was devastated to see that Dean Elston had been the victim of theft when being so kind and helpful to me after I fell on High Bridge, damaging my left shoulder and breaking my arm.

I would like to express my thanks to Dean and all the people who were so very kind and also Lincolnshire Police who made sure my wife got home safely.
