Sky News extract:

"A schoolboy has been praised for helping a distraught Year 7 pupil who got lost on his way home after his first day of high school.

"Tom O'Brien, 15, gave the 11-year-old £10 after discovering him crying on a bus in Liverpool. He also ordered a cab to collect him from the next stop after he had got on the wrong bus from Holy Family Catholic High School in Thornton.

"The younger boy, without any money or a mobile phone, had no other means of getting back to his home in Netherton. Two fellow Year 7 students, Harry Campbell and Dylan Robson, stood with him while he waited for the cab to arrive.

"Tom's generosity did not go unnoticed, with the mother of one of the children on the bus sharing the act of kindness on Facebook. Ruth Furlong wrote in a post: "There really are some truly decent kids out there!

"An year 11 lad came over to them all asking how their first day went? He spots a new kid crying because he's gotten on the wrong bus and it's getting further away from where he lives. It's ok mate, don't worry, you'll be home soon' he told him. He whipped out a tenner and arranged for a taxi to pick him up at the next bus stop and made sure he got home safe."

Agreed. But, a tenner. Blimey! I got 50p a week pocket money, and 30p extra fagging for a house prefect.
