About a week ago my other half and I were stopped outside Guy's Hospital
by a middle aged man in a blue uniform asking for £4 to release his car as his wife had been suddenly taken to another hospital as he wanted to follow her. Perhaps naively we gave him some change as he seemed desperate.
On Sunday afternoon I saw the same man approach another couple using the same line and asking for money.
Strikes me as an unusual and not very lucrative way to get money out of people. Just want others to be aware that this is likely to be a con should they be similarly approached.
