A GOOD Samaritan who drove off with a woman’s shopping after helping her at the scene of a breakdown is being sought by police.

At about 1pm, on Monday, a man and woman’s silver Kia broke down in Laygate, South Shields.

A man in a large silver car stopped to help the couple get the vehicle started again.

While this was happening, the woman accidentally placed a shopping bag into the Good Samaritan’s car, which he ended up driving away with.

Police are not treating it as a crime at this stage, but are keen to trace the man who helped so the shopping can be returned to its rightful owner.

The man, or anyone who may know him, is asked to contact police on 101, extension 69191.
