Teen embeds car in Edinburgh basement
Reg reader snaps spectacular prang
We're obliged this morning to reader Paul Moran for sending us a snap of what happens when you try and park a Ford Focus at an inadvisably high speed:
According to the Beeb, the car was stolen in Wallyford in East Lothian on Monday, and eventually ended its journey on the corner of Edinburgh's North Castle Street and Hill Street after the teenager at the wheel "saw a police car out on patrol, drove at high speed, and crashed into the basement".
The 16-year-old miscreant suffered minor cuts in the crash and was later "seen being led away in handcuffs". The Focus was subsequently towed from the basement by a fire engine. ®
Chav nav is more accurately described as the small black, wrist-watch like device chavs (or neds) wear aorund their ankles which ensures they are home for 8pm each evening.
Basement...easy. First Floor...harder.
Remember this incident (the BBC story has a picture)
Here in the UK, I can set my cruise control that high too. And they do use 'chav' in Edinburgh, though ned is preferred around the rest of Scotland AFAIK. I'd never heard of chavs until about 5 years ago.
