An elderly woman wants to thank two young men who helped her and her husband who got stuck in their car over two stone boulders.

Jenny Allen, who is 80-years-old, and her 93-year-old husband were driving down a 'soggy country lane' near Burnham Beeches.

Mrs Allen said: "The speed was slow because we were looking out for a particular address - several cars were behind us, so my husband who was at the wheel pulled over to allow them all to pass."

In doing so he unintentionally drove over two stone boulders which got lodged in the undercarriage of the car.

Mrs Allen told the Bucks Free Press that they tried for about 15 minutes and at their age the prospect of getting away seemed 'very dismal'.

Many cars passed during their struggle until a large van and trailer stopped for the elderly couple.

Mrs Allen said: "Two tall guys came to inspect the trouble , and without any hesitation they set to to free the car for us.

"We couldn’t believe our good fortune that such public spirited blokes should take pity on us.

"It was an extremely demanding and exacting task , and they used all their experience with tools and various kit , jacking up the car to sufficient height to access the boulders in question.

"Success followed - our car was free to be driven away!"

The two men were from Chesham but Mrs Allen isn't sure of their names.

Her and her husband spent the first 20 years of their life married in Chartridge in Chesham with their children attending local schools.

She branded the men in high-vis jackets 'angels' and explained that they will be "forever grateful to them for their wonderful act of kindness, and I just want them to know this."
