Taxi driver’s sweet act of kindness after women accidentally park an hour away from gig

A woman feels overwhelmed by an act of kindness after visiting a town in Merseyside she had never been to before.

Hayley Bane, from Birkenhead, travelled over to St Helens for the Paul Heaton and Jacqui Abbott gig at the Totally Wicked stadium last Friday, July 22.

The music fan was travelling with her friend Emma Jones and the pair, unfamiliar with the area, decided to park their car in the nearest car park they came across, reports the Liverpool Echo.

This was at a Premier Inn hotel around an hour’s walk from the stadium.

After having some lunch the friends attempted to ring a taxi, but were unsuccessful- so set off on foot.

Managing to hail a black cab, Hayley explained the situation and was moved by the driver’s actions.

She told the Liverpool Echo: “We got in and the driver set off for the stadium. We got chatting and the driver asked us where we staying there and I explained that no, I had just paid to park there.

“The taxi driver said there are plenty of places closer to the stadium where we could park.

“Then he turned off his meter, took us back to the Premier Inn and said to me to follow him.

He led us to Marshalls Cross Lane, where we parked about a five minute walk to the stadium, and he left without charging us a penny.

“He left before we could even thank him. I would love to get in contact with him so we could say thank you.”

Hayley took to social media in an attempt to track down the kind driver, and her post has received many comments applauding his actions.

“One comment said: “Great advert for our wonderful town and hopefully you enjoyed the gig, I certainly did.”
