‘I’M HEADED FOR DENMARK MOM: A youngster (not pictured above) has been caught twice attempting a 600km journey from Norway to Denmark. Perhaps his mother should invest in driving lessons for the lad and find out who his “friends” are?

OSLO, Norway - An 11-year-old boy has been caught behind the wheel of a car twice in a week, police in Norway have reported.

Police stopped the boy at a road block in Flekkerjord, about 100km from his home in Bryne, the Stavanger Aftenbladed newspaper reported.


Earlier in the week the same boy took to the road in his step-father's car and drove an estimated 150km before the car ended up in a ditch. He was then quoted as saying he had been "heading for Denmark to meet some friends".

The boy's mother said he had also tried to drive a tractor on to a highway. Social welfare authorities and his family were discussing how to help him.

Driving lessons, perhaps?
