A homeless man who returned a young woman's bank card after she dropped it has been labellled 'a star.'
The ECHO reported how the woman's mum took to social media to thank the young man for his actions.
The mum, who did not wish to be named, was at B&M store in Utting Avenue, Walton, with her daughter on Saturday when a homeless man returned her daughter's debit card and driver's licence which she was unaware she had dropped.
She described how the man ran after her daughter to return the card and that he was "over the moon" to be able to return it to her.
The Facebook post read: "To the homeless man that sits outside B&M Walton, thank you so much for running after my daughter with her bank card she dropped.
"He was shouting and shouting [at] her to turn around as he didn't want to scare her by tapping her on the shoulder.
"He was very kind and very polite. When I went to thank him he said to me 'I would never steal and I am glad she got it back.'
"She went to the bank and gave him a little something for his kindness and he was over the moon. Respect to you mate.
"Always smiling and wishing is a good day. Anyone shopping there today please say hello back [to] the lovely man."
Many took to social media to praise the man.
Rosina Brown said: "Well done and so much respect for this man. You are a star."
Charlotte Kennedy said: "He's so polite and he always has a smile on his face, just goes to show don't judge a book by the cover."
