Staff writer

A kind pub-goer in Newcastle-on-Tyne helped a man who was begging by giving him his bank card and PIN, and telling him to withdraw £20.

According to a post shared online by Jack Fada, the man, who was said to be homeless, approached a group sitting outside of bar and asked for money.

"The bloke gives him his bank card and PIN number and tells him to take 20 quid for himself", Mr Fada wrote alongside a video of the man returning the bank card to the generous stranger.

"Don't dare tell me Newcastle isn't the greatest place on earth", he wrote. The footage had over 169,000 views at the time of writing.
