LONDON, Jan. 6 (UPI) -- A British teenager who found he had no toilet paper after "a reasonably large poo" on a train tweeted for help and was rescued by Virgin Trains staff.
Adam Greenwood of Lancaster, England, said he was using the restroom during a Virgin Trains trip last month from London to Glasgow, Scotland, when he realized there was no toilet paper left on the roll.
I've just had a reasonably large poo and there is no toilet roll left on the @virgintrains 19.30 train from Euston to Glasgow pls send help.— Adam (@AdamPlaysYT) December 2, 2014
"I've just had a reasonably large poo and there is no toilet roll left on the @virgintrains 19:30 train from Euston to Glasgow pls send help," Greenwood tweeted.
Greenwood told Buzzfeed he thought the tweet would do nothing more than "make people laugh," but he quickly received a reply from the Virgin Trains staffer manning the company's Twitter account.
@VirginTrains J thank you— Adam (@AdamPlaysYT) December 2, 2014
The staffer, identified only as "^MW," had Greenwood identify which train car he was in and quickly had a roll of toilet paper sent to the restroom.

"I tweeted back with the carriage number and I shortly after I saw a guy looking quite worried in a full black suit carrying toilet roll, after the awkward exchange and smiles I grabbed it off him and finished what I started!" Greenwood said.
