A shop assistant is still shaken after rushing to the aid of a motorcyclist who crashed his bike.
Carolyn Ward is one of two staff members at Warner’s Supermarket whose swift actions have been praised by police.
Ms Ward was walking to work in Hanley Road when she saw a motorcyclist swerve to avoid a car and come off his bike.
“The traffic was backing all the way up and the biker was overtaking traffic slowly, then a car pulled out so he had to swerve to avoid it and the bike fell on his ankle,” she said.
“I can’t lift a Harley Davidson but people in cars got out and got the bike off him.
“The manager Jack is a first aider so he did the first aid – I just put ice on his ankle and waited with him until the ambulance arrived.
“I was probably out there for about 45 minutes helping out and waiting for the emergency services to turn up.
“It was a bit scary and I didn’t stop shaking for about 30 minutes afterwards. I don’t know how the man is – I hope he’s ok.”
