Photo: Driver stuck on London Square/The Monument, Southport

Merseyside police this week had to come to the aid of a pensioner that thought it was okay to park his Nissan Micra on the Monument.

A member of the public said: “I really don’t know how he managed to get there without damaging his car.  The investigating officers seen the funny side of the pensioners poor judgement and helped him off”.

Another onlooker: “What a joke, he and other people who make these sort of stupid mistakes should be made to retake a test”.

Thankfully no pedestrians were injured and the driver was allowed to carry on.
