A dangerous collision at the Baldock railway station car park was narrowly avoided this morning when two workers pushed a rolling car back to safety.
The Alfa Romeo Giulietta had rolled down the slope in the car park and had temporarily come to a stop before Terry Smith, with the assistance of a coffee stall worker, leaped into action to push the car into a free space and secure it.
Ticket office clerk Terry said: “I saw from the station entrance that a car had rolled down the hill.
“This was a danger to other vehicles. Fortunately the man who sells coffee from a van in the car park was close to me and we were able to reach the car before it caused any damage.
“We managed to park the car in the space and block the tire with a stump to anchor it in position.”

The owner of the car caught the 7.52am train to London.
A Great Northern spokesman said: “Our staff do go the extra mile for our passengers - or in this case the extra 20 yards - to give them great service. I am sure that, should the motorist realise when they read the Comet, they will no doubt be appreciative of Terry’s initiative and helpfulness.”
