Joe McGrath: Stranger's holiday with birthday group

A group of friends planning a trip to Majorca asked a complete stranger to go with them when a friend dropped out - because he had the same name.

The 10 friends from Bristol turned to Facebook and found a Joe McGrath in Stockport who agreed to go on the paid-for trip for a 30th birthday.

The 21-year-old said they were "an absolutely lovely group of people".

"They messaged 15 other Joe McGraths on Facebook and only one was stupid enough to reply, and that was me," he said.
