Mr Green, 50, donned a chauffeur’s hat and turned up in his cherished Aston Martin to help do the honours for Swansea couple Kevin and Wanda Harding.
“As requests for help go, it was pretty unusual,” admitted Mr Green.
“By all accounts, Wanda had been on the motorway when I overtook in my Aston Martin, which has a cherished number plate YE54 KEV (Yes for Kev).

The latest 'Shop Elli' column from the Llanelli Star - 

With 13 days to go to Christmas, the festive season has definitely arrived at Llanelli’s St Elli Shopping Centre.
Santa’s Grotto is up and running and is part of the big ‘Christmas Shop’ at Unit 1 at the centre, immediately next to Greggs the bakers.
St Elli centre manager Andrew Stephens said: “Our lights are up and Santa’s grotto is bigger and better than ever.
“The centre has had an early Christmas present with the vote of confidence from our new owners.
“We are currently averaging 600,000 shoppers a month, but December is always our busiest time of the year and we expect to smash that figure this month.
“Our appeal to all shoppers is to support all of Llanelli town centre, including the St Elli Shopping Centre.”
