Well done to quick-thinking home delivery driver Kevin Arkell from our Queslett store who ran to help a five-year-old boy whose electric go-kart malfunctioned and propelled him into the path of an oncoming bus.

The boy had a lucky escape as the bus managed to slam on its brakes in time and narrowly missed him.

Kevin dashed to the scene as the boy's go-kart came to a halt next to a parked car, and the boy's grateful mum wrote to the store to thank him for his kindness.

She wrote: "He was delivering a few doors down and ran to my son, got him out of his seat and checked him over before I even got close.

"He stuck around to make sure everything was okay and even apologised that he couldn't get there sooner to do anything more."

Home shopping manager Shellie Dyke, who has nominated Kevin for an Asda service superstar award, says everyone at the store is proud of him.

She said: "He's a very caring and compassionate man who will do anything for anyone. He's very humble too and just said he did what any other driver would have done! The mum was very grateful and we are all thankful that the little boy was ok."

Well done Kevin!
