A young woman who was left stranded after she missed the last train from London was looked after by a kind homeless man who saw her crying.
Nicole Sedgebeen had gone out for the night in the capital but when she arrived at Euston Station to go back home to Milton Keynes, the doors were closed.
With the rain pelting down on her and temperatures plummeting to zero, a drunken Nicole broke down in tears as she tried to work out what to do in a strange city.
But a homeless man called Mark stepped in and ended up becoming her hero.

Taking her to an all-night cafe for a coffee and a chat, Mark promised he would return at 5am to take her back to the station.
Despite Nicole’s doubts, he did exactly that - even getting a bus to reach her - and it changed her perceptions of homeless people forever.
Posting a selfie with her new friend, Nicole wrote on Facebook: “It got past 5 and he was a no show. As I got round the corner my homeless friend Mark was running down the street towards me.
“Not only did he turn up but he had to get a bus to come get me.
“This man who I probably would of avoided eye contact with if he asked for spare change, completely changed such a negative event into the most eye opening event in my life.
“Mark you are one special man, I will never look down on a homeless person again.”
She later said Mark told her it was “a father’s duty to get another man’s daughter home safe”.
