The Drum tests the kindness of strangers as part of the Metro and Asda's Do It Day challenge

If an old man fell in front of you would you stop and help?

As part of the Metro and Asda's Good Deed Day challenge on Do It Day, The Drum took to the streets of London to test how kind people really are.

Dressed as a pensioner, The Drum's Flannan Hassett challenged Londoners on the Southbank to think of someone other than themselves during rush hour.

Watch the video above to see how many people stopped to help.
