Greggs driver stranded on motorway gives away pasties and sausage rolls to freezing drivers

Kind-hearted Jon Gowing left the safety of his warm lorry to trek through the snow with a tray of treats after getting stuck in the two-mile queue for hours.

Mechanical engineer Les Goff helped Jon hand out the goodies after walking through the snow to see how long the queue was.

He said: "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."

Roisin Currie, people and retail director at Greggs said: "We are incredibly proud of Jon and his act of kindness in what must have been a very tough situation for him and all the other poor people stuck on the A1 in this cold weather.

"We hope that his kind gesture was able to help make everyone's day a little bit better."
