Birmingham friend's billboard thanks to volunteer

Claire Johnson has very publicly thanked her friend Jo Stretch with a specially commissioned billboard in Birmingham city centre.

It is part of a UK-wide campaign called #ThereForMe, encouraging everyone to pay tribute to people serving their local communities.

Ms Stretch, from Halesowen is a volunteer driver who collects elderly people from their homes and takes them to monthly meet-ups.
