A kindhearted stranger was hailed a hero after paying for a 'struggling' woman's entire shopping in an Aldi supermarket because he saw her upset at the till.

Chris Hogan, who witnessed the "incredible act" in Moreton, Merseyside, now wants to identify the man and praise him for his behaviour.

The mystery man saw a woman become upset at the checkout as she struggled to find enough change to pay for her shop on Thursday [Sept 19].

And he paid for the lot himself before modestly leaving the supermarket.

Fellow shopper Mr Hogan, 30, said:

You could see she was getting agitated. It's the classic debate of whether you take your shopping back [to the aisle] or try to pay.
