Joyful Waving


A bearded old man who sits by the road between two seaside resorts waving at passing cars has become an internet star. The man -who calls himself Moses-Peter- has spent years perched on a chair waving at passers-by for hours at a time.

Motorists have now set up a Facebook called "Strange Old Man Who Sits On A Bench On the Road Between Torquay and Paignton" which has attracted more than 10,000 followers, many of them holidaymakers.

"It gives me an overwhelming sense of happiness when he waves at me. This man is, somehow, magical", says one driver. The mystery man has refused to explain his actions, simply stating "I am spreading a message of joy, love and happiness."
