Stunned commuters received presents from complete strangers at Grand Central in Birmingham.

NBCUniversal International Networks’ Christmas 24 held The Christmas Gift Experiment featuring a sign lit up with the message “free presents”.

Those who approached received a call from a mystery voice who then distributed a present to whoever picked up the phone.

In a twist, the person who received the call was then asked to find someone inside the station to deliver the present too.

The video at the top of the page shows exactly what happened and how people responded to being approached by a stranger with a present.

Thuy Nguyen took part in the experiment and said: “When I realised the gift was meant for someone else, I was surprised.

“But seeing the gentleman’s reaction when he opened the scarf was wonderful. Being able to bring a little happiness to someone I had never met before was a lovely feeling and what Christmas should be all about.”
