Ellie Farnfield (27) was making her way to London to teach an evening class when she suffered a fit.

Upon regaining consciousness she realised that the mystery man, known only as 'Tom', had contacted several people from her phone contacts book and left her £10 for taxi fare.

In an attempt to locate the Good Samaritan she created the hashtag #findtraintom and posted the note she received on her Facebook page.

It read: "Hi Eleanor. I hope by the time you read this you are feeling better. You had a seizure on the train and I took you off.

"You didn't hit your head but I may have hurt your leg as I walked on it before realising you were on the floor having a fit! Sorry!

"I'm also sorry I can't stay with you now but here is a coffee to perk you up later and £10 to make sure you get a taxi home.

"Sorry I don't have anymore money so I hope you don't live far away. I've contacted people from your phone and medical help is on its way and you're with train staff.

"Wishing you all the best and a quick recovery. Love Tom."

Ellie said that the incident had restored her faith in humanity.

The MailOnline reports that Ellie initially thought that someone had stolen her bag when she regained consciousness in the train station.

"There is something really lovely about the kindness of a stranger.

"Everyone thinks Tom is great. There has been lots of speculation about who he might be, what he does, what he looks like, and friends "shotgunning" him as their future boyfriend," she said.
