Sir – We would like to thank the young motorcyclist who guided us safely to our hotel destination at The Bird in Hand, at Whiteoak Green, late on the night of Sunday, January 5, at about 8pm.

We had got lost in the floods and storm in unfamiliar territory on the country roads around Witney. I should also mention the garage staff who helped us as well.

On his little motorbike, he was a true knight of the road. Many thanks from a grateful Scots couple.

Moira Wilkie, Strone, Dunoon, Argyll
