10:33am on Monday, 2nd April, 2007:
We were flagged down yesterday as we drove along the A14 just before Newmarket. A man and a woman were outside their car, waving their arms with the kind of gesture that says "look out, quicksand ahead, for your own sake, stop now!". When we did stop, it transpired that they had a flat tyre and wanted to borrow our mobile phone so they could call for help (tsk, no spare wheel, eh?).
The A14 is a busy road, so we wondered how long they'd been waiting.
The man spoke to us first. He told us they'd been trying to get someone to stop for almost an hour, and that they had a fractious 2-year-old in the back of the car.
While he was on the phone, we spoke to the woman. She told us they'd been trying to get someone to stop for around 20 minutes, and that they were lucky their sleeping 2-year-old in the back of the car hadn't woken up.
Half a mile further down the road was a lay-by with an emergency telephone in it.
