A nan who fell outside B&Q as she was shopping with her grandson was shocked when she saw a pair brown shoes as she looked up.

The 74-year-old nan, who has arthritis, kept a tight grip on her young grandson as cars passed on the road beside where she lay with a swollen knee.

But a mysterious stranger rushed to help with such speed that the gran saw only his brown shoes.

The Wirral nan, who needs both legs for the two jobs she works, told the ECHO: “I only saw his brown shoes.

“I’m 74 on the larger side and have arthritis, which includes in the knee.

“I couldn’t get myself up and was conscious of my five-year-old grandson that I’d kept tight hold of due to cars passing and he was practically underneath me.

“How this man, who I think was also elderly, helped me up I’m clueless. He was over to me in a flash and repeatedly asked me if I was alright.

“It’s just a pity I didn’t thank him properly.

“My grandson said he had a sad day as his Nannie fell over.

“Fortunately, he was not hurt and is fine.”

The nan took to social media to pay her thanks to the kind stranger who swept in to save her after her fall on Monday, December 20.

Writing on Facebook in the hope that he’d see it, she said: “I had a fall outside B&Q on the kerb today.

“Only thing is, I had my 5-year-old grandson with me and was conscious of the road.

“He’s fine, but would like to thank the gentleman who got me off the floor.

“All I recall is he had brown shoes on. Never seen his face. Grandson fine. Me had a cry!

“That man was so good checking and making sure I was okay. Swollen knee but otherwise fine.

“Wish him a very HNY xx”
