Everyone saying well done to Dave doesn't know that he left the meter running.

Hi Reg, Dave is my dad and he didn’t charge for the ride to A&E so please don’t spread false information. Thanks

Sian I'm sure reg didn't mean anything by that statement, probably poor taste banter, good on your dad any how.

I hope Charlie makes a full and speedy recovery, what an ordeal! I commute to work by bike and this is genuinely giving me second thoughts, I didn't think pavements could just open up like this - I hope the utility company have an apparent reason why this accident happened?! Best wishes to Charlie, I hope this hasn't put him off cycling! What a lovely Cab driver Dave is too!
