In the early hours of Sunday January 18, I was woken by two police officers at the door, initially a rather worrying experience.
It turned out a taxi driver had noticed someone looking into my car through the window I had accidently left open and informed the police.
I would like to thank the driver for their kindness in taking the time to let the police know.
I am also very gratful to the police officers who despite the freezing weather were warm and friendly and sorted out the car for me.
Having returned to live in Scarborough recently from London, I am still charmed every day by the friendliness and humour of people, and this has proved to me yet again what a wonderful place it is to live.
