A homeless man is seeking kind-hearted strangers who took pity on him on the coldest night of the year - putting him up in a hotel.
Timothy Murray was huddled on the streets covered in blankets when he was spotted by the guests.
To his surprise, he was then approached by a staff member at the Kings Head, in Cirencester, who told him he had a room booked for the night.
I was outside when one of the lasses who works there (the Kings Head) said someone had paid for a room for me for the night. I thought they were joking. My eyes lit up.
When I got into my room I was very cold and tired.
There was a walk-in shower and a bath, and I was going to watch telly, too, but as soon as I lay on the bed I must've fallen straight to sleep because I don't remember anything until morning.
The people who paid for the room have asked to remain anonymous, but now Timothy is now urging them to come forward so he can say thankyou.
I was never told who it was. It's strange that I don't know, but I appreciate they would rather remain anonymous. Thank you.
Timothy was an engineer before falling on hard times, first losing his job and eventually his flat in Siddington around five months ago.
Some guests kindly paid for a homeless gentleman to spend a night at the Kings Head. The hotel supports a wide range of local charities and we applaud our guests' generosity.

Lady Bathurst of Cirencester Park, Cirencester, has launched an online appeal to raise funds for the victims of the Christmas 2015 floods across the UK.
"Like so many, Lord Bathurst and I have watched the news reports over this festive period with a growing sense of horror and helplessness.
It was a completely natural and immediate reaction to want to try and do something constructive to help those who are having such a devastating experience, right across the country."
We all remember the devastating 2007 floods across Gloucestershire and the equally wonderful way in which complete strangers pulled together to help each other. It is only natural that we would all wish to reflect the amazing support we were shown back then, and if I can offer an avenue for everyone to do so, then I couldn't be happier.
The appeal has already raised £700 and will help flood victims, with particular emphasis on those who are no longer covered by insurance, the elderly, the isolated, as well as those families with young children.
It will help them to refurnish their homes with basic furniture and essential electrical goods such as sofas, kitchen equipment, washing machines and other household necessities.
