SIR: After printing my letter, about the rats who stole my baby's car seat, my faith in people has been restored. I have found some genuine people out there, and I would like to thank them for their thoughtfulness.

I was not able to take them up on their offers, as I had already managed to replace my baby's car seat through the help of both my husband and my family.?

Please can I thank the couple who, on reading my plight, came round to offer their grandchild's car seat.

I am sorry to have missed you and would have loved to thank you in person for your kind and thoughtful offer.

I believe, once again, there are decent people who care out there.

Mrs K M Rodely,

Langholm Drive, Bolton.
