A woman called the police for help after her car ran out of petrol on the A610 at Sawmills this morning.
The incident happened at around 8.15am, close to the Bullbrdige exit. A police spokesperson said the woman was worried because it happened on a main road. Police officers went to protect her and the car until a friend turned up with some petrol.
Witnesses said the woman could be seen sitting on a wall receiving assistance from a paramedic.
