Annoyed workers had to leave a road unfinished as they tried to resurface around a parked car on the street.
The road in Boston, Lincolnshire, was due to be fully resurfaced over three days from Monday, January 21, but on the last day of work a parked car was found within the road closure.
Workers from Minster Surfacing were due to lay the surface of the road that day, so had to try to work around the parked car to get the job done. Afterwards the road was left with a glaring gap where the vehicle was parked and workers had to go back today, Thursday, January 23 to finish the job.
The company has so far refused to say which street it had happened on - possibly to spare the blushes of the driver, whose mother came out to speak to workers in tears.
