The search is on for a stranger who helped a man to hospital late at night after the derby, after he had been injured while stepping out of a taxi.

Callum Reid's collarbone broke into three pieces when a taxi sped off before he had fully got out of the car.

He said: "I was out at Derby day and went to a few bars afterwards. I left in the early hours to get a cab. I got in and soon realised I wouldn't be able to pay the fare, so I asked to get out.

"I think we had a bit of an argument, and when I was halfway out of the car, he slammed the accelerator on and I went flying.

"I hit my head on the ground, and he left me in the middle of the road."

Then a man - Mr Reid does not remember many details other than he was white and probably in his thirties - came and took him to hospital to be treated.

Mr Reid said: "He came in and just left. I didn't get his name. I was all over the place by this point - I'd hit my head really hard."

The broken collarbone needs to have a metal plate put in it, and Mr Reid spent the night in hospital.

Now he is trying to find the man who helped him, both to thank him and to ask whether he saw what happened with the taxi driver.

His mother, Vanessa Wallace, said: "He was a good Samaritan. He's a hero. He's a very, very kind and generous man, and we are really grateful.

"I'd love to talk to him. We're quite a close family, and I just feel so grateful.

"You worry about your children, but it makes you feel better when you think there are people looking out for others."
