​Greggs Delivery Driver Proves Not All Heroes Wear Capes As He Hands Out Food To Stranded Drivers

​Greggs Delivery Driver Proves Not All Heroes Wear Capes As He Hands Out Food To Stranded Drivers

Not all heroes wear capes. In fact, some wear the sort of gear suitable for the driver of an HGV.

Take this king among men as an example. Jon Gowing proved he was a top LAD among the vicious weather that has been smashing the UK.

While drivers were stranded on the A1 road in the north of England on Thursday, Greggs delivery driver Jon started handing out free cakes, pasties and doughnuts to his fellow motorists.

Take a look at the evidence.

Just imagine that. You're freezing your bollocks off in your Vauxhall Corsa, stuck in snow, somewhere in the north east of England with no sight of home but then a saint appears at your car window.

And that superstar is carrying a Steak Bake. It's the stuff dreams are made of. Throw in a jam or custard doughnut, take your personal preference, and suddenly you've forgotten all about the snow.

Mechanical engineer Les Goff, who is apparently also a guitar technician for the Pigeon Detectives but has the least rock n roll name ever, from Leeds was also stuck on the A1 and helped Jon boy hand out the Greggs SOS.

Les told The Mirror while still stuck in the snow: "The traffic had been stopped for a couple of hours so I went for a walk for a couple of miles to see if I could help, but I still couldn't see the start of the queue.

"I was walking back down the hill when I saw the Greggs guy at the back with the tail-lift and he just said, 'Do you want some cakes'?

"He asked me to take some to the other drivers and he walked up the traffic and I walked down the traffic with doughnuts, vanilla slices and cakes, handing them out.

"He was a top guy. He said if he hadn't delivered them by a certain time, they would go to waste.

"Obviously it was freezing, I couldn't feel my fingers and toes as I was walking along with this tray of cakes."

Sir, we salute you.
