De Burgh Helps Young Hitchhiker

Irish singer CHRIS DE BURGH has offered a young Scottish girl free travel to school after her local council told her to hitchhike every day.

The LADY IN RED hitmaker was shocked to read young HEIDI PENNELLS, eight, had been refused a place of the free school bus to Crudie Primary School in Turriff.

Aberdeenshire Council told Pennells it would cost too much money for the bus to detour to her home and suggested she hitchhike.

De Burgh has given the money to the council to cover the detour, labelling the hitchhike decision "madness".
