A driver managed to wedge his vehicle sideways between two cars while trying to turn around in a tight spot.
It happened when the man attempted to turn his car in Lytton Road, a cul-de-sac in Clarendon Park, Leicester.
The driver, who wishes to remain anonymous, said:
Once he had got the car wedged into the gap, he faced struggled to get it out again.
He said he was "already too far in" to reverse out of the cul-de-sac.
The man left his phone number on the windscreens of the other two cars, and was eventually able to free his vehicle.
