WE would like to thank the Good Samaritan who came to our assistance about 11.15am on November 9 when my wife and myself were trapped inside the disabled toilet in the Carlton Street car park.We were able to push the radar key under the door so that he could attempt to open the door from the outside, but the key would not turn in the lock. He said he would go for help and did report the incident to the town hall staff. How long we would have been trapped before help arrived we will never know as I loosened the screws on the inside door panel with my car keys and to my surprise the handle then moved and the door opened.There are no pull cords or emergency telephone numbers inside the cubicles so it is possible for disabled person to be locked in all night until the cleaners call the next day.MAUREEN AND ROY GODWIN - Highland Close, Worlebury
