Man thanksGoring laundry rescuer

A MAN, whose clothes became trapped inside a drier at a Launderette wants to thank the good Samaritan that helped him.

Barry Collins, 75, did not notice the spin drier he used at the launderette in Aldsworth Avenue, Goring, was out of order. When he closed the lid his clothes were locked inside.

The man described as in his early 20s called a help number and followed instructions to free Barry’s clothes.

“I was very grateful to the chap. He was so considerate, he wanted to call the company back and tell them not to come out because it was a Sunday morning.

“I did panic a bit and wanted to say thank you because he was so helpful.”

Barry said the out of order notice was not prominent enough for older people to see.
