'Now, where did I park my car?': By any chance did you leave it in this car park two years ago?

The broken-down Mercedes has been sitting in a parking lot, unclaimed, for over two years.

A COMPANY IN the UK is battling to have a broken-down Mercedes, which has been sitting in their parking lot for more than two years, removed.


The Middlesex-based Apcoa Parking said it had been unable to trace the owner of the broken-down car, which was dumped at its multi-storey facility in Ladywood, Birmingham, in 2012.

Over the last two years, the car, which has not been reported stolen, would have accumulated quite the parking bill.

With a daily rate of £13, even if you wanted to claim the car, it could cost you at least £9,000 or €11,000. Ouch!
