HELP needed in Leciester/Birstall area.

Hello East Mids AO'ers.

I thought id try my luck on here as my options are limited.

I was on my way back oooop north from London earlier and the MCSF light lit up on my dashboard when I was around Leicester on the M1. The car went into 'limp mode' and it struggled to do 40mph, which is quite scary on the M1 I can tell you.

I ended up on the A46 (i think) and limped to the Birstall services which is where I am now.

I have only just realised that breakdown cover is a wonderful thing cos if I had had it, I wouldnt be in the situation now.

Basically, what I am after is.......... does anyone know anywhere safe to store my car till monday ??

and (wishful thinking here)....if anyone is going to NAD tomorrow, would they fancy giving me a lift up there cos Im not far from home up there and one of the AONE lot will sort me out from there.

I know im being cheeky here but if you dont ask........

Thanking you in advance.

Hey, im from Leicester, if you can limp your car down the road from the services into Birstall it will be quite safe anywhere there, Birstall's a fairly nice area and theres no such thing as parking permits etc.

or if you like and can find your way to my area I can keep any eye on it till monday although my place is only 10mins from where you are it's not sat navvable as its brand new and parking is difficult, you'd have to have it on the street, I wouldnt mind keeping an eye on it tho. PM me.
