A stranger who helped a group of primary school pupils visiting Old Trafford for a match has been thanked.

The group were visiting the stadium to watch Manchester United play Reading FC but were told at the entrance they would have to put their over sized bags in a holding area and pay £5 each.

With the game about to start Andrew Bradshaw intervened and said the bags could be placed in his car boot and even handed his car keys to the staff member with the children.

He has now been thanked on social media,

The facebook post reads, "On Saturday the 5th of January 2019 I took a group of pupils of Jamia Madaniya Forest Gate London to Old Trafford Manchester to watch Manchester United play Reading FC

"The match was due to start at 1230pm but we reached the stadium at 1228pm.

"However the stewards at the gates refused us entry due to over sized bags carried by pupils.

"They began to direct us towards an office that collects and keeps the oversized bags for £5.00 each.

"As I was speaking with them a man called Andrew Bradshaw intervened and said to me please take my car keys and put all your bags in my car boot.

"I looked at him thinking who are you?

"He stepped forward and said look at the carpark, and see my boot open.

"I saw his boot open and then he  almost placed the keys in my hands and said take my keys and return them to me after the match .

"So based on that we proceeded to his BMW and placed all our bags inside his boot and finally we were allowed into the stadium.

"After the match we proceeded towards the bmw, where Mr Bradshaw his wife and son were waiting.

"The children gave him a huge thank you to Mr Bradshaw and he still had not finished.

"He gifted all the pupils with man utd cups and magazines and asked who is the most unsensible child here?  One girl raised her hand and said I am.

"He gifted her with £70 pounds to distribute amongst the rest of the children.

"The children were very joyful to meet such a great person and decided to take a memorable picture with him and his wife on the left.

"The lesson I took was when did I ever think of opening my car boot and hand over a very expensive car keys to a stranger?

"And the greatest lesson was that there are so many non Muslims out there who carry so much humanity that I as a believer should carry .

"My trouble is every time I do something for humanity and feel good about it there is always some ONE and in this case a non-Muslim doing much better."

Andrew's was also full of praise for her dad after reading the post.
