‘Extreme parking’ at Lynmouth

Joseph Bulmer

Awkward moments for white van owner as it falls from the deck of local car park.

OOPS. It was a case of “van damn” for the owner of this white vehicle spotted wedged into a footpath below the Lyndale car park at Lynmouth on Saturday morning.

The picture was taken by Sharon Hobbs, whose family runs Lorna Doone House guest house opposite the car park.

She thinks the calamity happened overnight into Saturday morning, but it is not clear how it occurred.

Several local people seemed to think the van’s handbrake had failed and it had rolled down the car park straight between the gap in the railings. No one is thought to have been injured.
