Stefan Snowden, from Twenty, Lincolnshire, made his way along the A151 as fellow drivers swerved to avoid the unlikely road user until a motorist stopped her van and parked it across the road to prevent a collision. A second woman looked after Stefan in her home while the van driver attempted to find out where the young boy lived. Carla Neve, Stefan's mother, had been out running an errand when Marc Snowden collapsed and her son made his exit.

"Marc suffers from epilepsy.

He was on the sofa and loses consciousness when he has a seizure. Stefan knows how to get out of the front door and must have gone to get his truck," Ms Neve told The Daily Mail.
