If you’ve ever been hungry and craving a takeaway, you’ll know the lengths you’ll go to in order to secure the bag of tasty goodies. That’s why one 90-year-old woman has become somewhat of a local legend after she became stranded whilst driving thanks to a pothole, but that wasn’t going to stop her from getting the kebab she wanted.

Kath Cains, 90, and her daughter Jill Hireson, 61, were driving to a local restaurant in near Bitton for lunch when their front tyres were blown out by a pothole. As well as being annoyed about the damage to the car, the two women were seriously hungry as their meal reservation slipped past.
They called the AA and had a genius idea to address their rumbling stomachs – a takeaway, delivered to their car, while they waited for rescue.
They used a local cottage’s postcode for the delivery of pizza, chicken, chips, and homemade coleslaw from First Choice Kebab Shop.

Jill says that the pothole was “so large it felt like a ditch” when they hit it, leaving her 90-year-old mother without food or anywhere to go to the toilet.

She added: “We had been driving along at a perfectly normal speed when we hit the potholes. It blew out both of my front tyres, which left us stranded.

”It was one of those weird situations where I just had to make the most of what could have been a bad situation. Thankfully despite all being hungry, we were able to order some food.
