HELP needed in the midlands (broken down)

Hello West 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

Hughes, that is actually genius mate and thanks ever so much for offering, I appreciate it greatly. Thing is though, Im sorted now at SR's house.

That'll teach me for not getting breakdown cover.

Thanks again Hughes, youre a gent. Ill buy you a beer/soft drink tomorrow.

Cheers lad
