Police Share Tea After Lonely Couple's Call

Year ago Jim Reeves and Patsy Cline performed a song together entitled, "Have You Ever Been Lonely?" It appears someone has.

"What else could we do but make them a brew [of tea] and have a chat," one of the officers reported on a Twitter feed. Thomson later told the BBC he was touched by the visit, saying he felt as if he had been "locked off from everything." He added: "You feel somebody cares and oh that does matter … simple things they talk about, nothing very special but they showed that they cared by being there and talking to you."
