An otherwise wonderful day with friends, family and the care and good wishes of strangers turned into a miserable memory by the selfish actions of one sad individual.
Pushing my 86 year old mother home in her wheelchair on Christmas night I noticed a car approaching us at speed down Friston Walk.
Concerned that the driver had failed to notice floodwater in the road, I attempted to slow the driver down by waving my arm.
Their response was to accelerate into the floodwater, thereby drenching me (not a problem) and my Mum. Mum has bronchitus; a soaking can’t have done her any good, and the shock alone made her tremble for some time afterwards.
