We’re not joking, this is what happened to Fifth Gear’s Tiff Needell, who was saved from the aforementioned situation by Linsday Orridge, who perfectly fits the aforementioned description.

On Sunday evening, Tiff was leaving the Autosport Awards being held at the Grosvenor House Hotel on London’s Park Lane, when a man came to shake his hand. The next moment, two other men appeared out of nowhere and attempted to mug the former F1 driver, grabbing his Jaeger-Le Coultre watch, reportedly worth $8,000 (around EUR6,000).

Linsday, who had seen everything shouted at the unidentified men to stop and when she received no response she decided to kick one of the muggers and then hit him. They tree were stunned by the feat and wanted to grab the watch and flee the scene, but Tiff managed to get it back in the last moment.

Linsday, marketing managed at Ford Motorsport, claims that she had never had a fight in her life and just reacted in a natural way.

Our say: would Vicky had reacted the same?
