On the night her car was smashed, Emily had been forced to park on a public car park as the staff car park at Worthing Hospital in West Sussex was full.

She had even left a note in her window saying she was a nurse.

Yet scumbag thieves still smashed the driver and front passenger windows to steal a coat and a pair of sunglasses.

The young woman said she had been left "absolutely devastated" by the theft.

She said: "Let’s just hope I never have to be your nurse and for what? To steal a s****y old coat and my prescription sunglasses. I hope they’re worth it."

But the young woman was inundated with offers to fix her car after sharing photos of the damage online.

And kind mechanic Steve Coward drove 47 miles from Hastings, East Sussex to fix her windows for free.

Emily gushed: "My faith in humanity has most definitely been restored.

"I can’t thank you all enough, just know you’ve made a nurse cry for most of her shift out of happiness all day."

She added a thank you to Steve, saying: "I’ve never met this man, and unfortunately due to being at work today I still haven’t met him, however you truly are an angel and a beautiful soul, I can never thank you even Steve, anything you ever need I’ll always be indebted to you, I’ll be clapping every Thursday especially for you."
