Michael Duncum has written in today’s EDP letters page to offer his apologies to a “lady driver” to whom he caused “considerable alarm” when he found her “sitting in a car a bit like ours” in Morrisons’ car park.
The letter has provoked discussion – and some merriment – on the internet, with some commending Mr Duncum for the steps he has taken to apologise, and others suggesting they have committed similar errors in the past.
