Ellie Goulding comes to rescue of driver ‘T-boned’ by Royal Mail lorry

Singer Ellie Goulding came to the rescue of a driver being pushed sideways by a Royal Mail lorry down one of London's busiest roads.

Footage being circulated on social media shows a Volkswagen GTi being pushed down Western Avenue, A40, by the delivery vehicle with other cars honking their horns to get the attention of the driver.

Eventually, the driver stops with motorists shouting at him: "What the f*** are you doing man?!"

The driver appears astonished to see the car in front of his truck, claiming he did not see it, or know it was there.

He can be heard yelling: "I didn't see him, I honestly didn't see him."
