Oops! That's wheely not a sensible place to park...

The driver of this car could be forgiven for parking on these double yellow lines on Burnham's seafront earlier this week.

He got a shock when his Mini came to a shuddering halt after a whole front wheel fell off.

The motorist, who asked to remain anonymous, told he was "stunned" by the incident, which occurred in front of bemused regulars at Chaplins Bar on The Esplanade.

"There was no warning of a problem and the car's in fairly good condition - it's the last thing you expect to happen!" he said. The car was later taken away by a vehicle recovery team.
