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:

When I got there, I was trying to turn round, but there wasn't enough space for a three-point turn.

I was trying to squeeze in and out and in and out, and somehow I ended up there.

I thought that there wasn't enough room to do a three-point turn, so I was doing a many point turn, and managed to wedge myself so perfectly.

I haven't bumped the other cars. There isn't any damage. I was just trying to turn around.

Once he had got the car wedged into the gap, he faced struggled to get it out again.

I thought, 'Oh dear, how do I get out of this?' I just got out of the car and looked around to see if there was any way of getting out. By that time, people had gathered round. Most people were trying to be helpful and work out who owned the cars.

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.

The vehicle was eventually freed after one of the other drivers arrived. Credit: BPM Media
