A furious driver desperate to stop his car being towed away slammed the vehicle into reverse and drove it straight off the back of a tow truck.

The disgruntled motorist was accused by a council in east London of parking illegally.

But when Waltham Forest Council tried to take the car away, he suddenly jumped in and drove off.

He hit the road with a loud thud and didn't get very far.
