Drivers could only chuckle to themselves with amusement after a speeding Vauxhall careered over a roundabout at Lane End and ended up parking awkwardly on the traffic island itself.

Bemused passers by could only laugh at the misfortune of the red faced driver, who was made to stand and soak up the embarrassment as a removal company took their time getting to the location.

Eye witnesses say the driver lost control after going off from his junction far too fast and, twinned with a slippery surface, left him skidding up and over the roundabout.

Later on he was mocked on local bad parking Facebook groups to add insult to injury
