The car careered down two hills before ending up in the pub garden.

Police were called to the incident before 8am yesterday, but said that the unnamed youngster escaped with just a slight bump to his head.

A Sussex Police spokesman said:

The boy unlocked the Subaru Impreza vehicle, which is an automatic, started it and drove it down the driveway, down two embankments and ended up in the garden of the Duke of Cumberland Arms pub.

He suffered a slight bump to the head after hitting it on the steering wheel.

An ambulance was called and he was taken to hospital to be checked out.

No one else was hurt, although the car was damaged.
