This was the startling moment a car reversed on top of another vehicle at a retail park in Sussex.

The Christmas shopping chaos seemed to get too much for one driver in Lewes yesterday morning (Monday, December 21) as when reversing, they accidentally mounted the kerb - and then the bonnet of a silver car parked behind.

East Sussex Fire and Rescue Service sent a crew from Newhaven to the scene at Brooks Road shortly after 11:30am.

A spokesperson said: “The incident involved two private vehicles, one vehicle was found to have reversed on to the second vehicle.

“Crews cordoned off the scene and made the area safe. The incident was then handed over to the vehicle owners to await recovery.”

On-looker Peter Calladine, who snapped a photograph, said: “The worst case of double parking I’ve ever seen.”
