Well done to home shopping driver Rob Stirk from our Skelmersdale store who came to the rescue of a hen party whose coach had got a puncture on one of the hottest days of the year.

Rob, who's 59 and has worked at the store for seven months, gave out bottles of cold water to the ladies who were returning from a night out in Liverpool and were stranded on the side of the road in the scorching heat.

One of the passengers, Helen, tweeted to thank Rob, saying: "This guy saved us from dehydration. We'd been stranded for two hours. He stopped at the side of the road and gave us cold water for free. Outstanding service."

Rob said: "I drove past them earlier on my shift and two hours later they were still there, sprawled on the grass verge.

"It was one of the hottest days of the year so I got some ice cold bottles of water out of the van and handed them out. They were so grateful. I just thought it was the right thing to do. It was just so hot."

Lisa Dean, the store's home shopping manager, said: "It was such a kind thing for Rob to do. He obviously saw that they were in trouble in this heat and went to help. He's a very helpful driver."
