image for Man cling-filmed car because he's sick of people parking outside his house and going on holiday

A man wrapped a car in cling film after becoming frustrated with people parking outside his house and then going on holiday.

Neil Junglas, 36, from Hunts Cross decided to get his own back on the driver of a silver Skoda that has now been outside his house for two days.

A man then got out of the car with two suitcases of luggage and also got in to the taxi and drove off.

Neil said: “They were clearly leaving their car there and just getting a taxi to the airport.

Neil complained he can no longer park his own car outside of his house because of the Skoda.

He told The ECHO that the car has attracted lots of attention and people have been stopping to take pictures.

Neil added that police even came to check the car but said they couldn’t do anything about it because it isn’t illegally parked. »
