ILLEGAL ALIEN: A previous generation Mercedes-Benz M-Class similar to this one illegally left in a London car park is tallying up a stack of fines.

LONDON, England – Three weeks in and an old Mercedes-Benz 4x4 is still abandoned in a North London car park, with a stack of 17 parking fines.

According to the Daily Mail, the car park's owner is so fed up with the offender that he has called in the police to help find the missing driver. The 4x4 appears to be an older, previous generation M-Class model, worth about R500 000.

DEEP POCKETS NEEDED

A spokesman of the car park said: "It's been there for 21 days so it got to the point where we had to alert the police.”

"The main thing is trying to find out if the owners are okay but if they do return to their car there is going to be a pretty big bill waiting for them,” he said.

"It's in the hands of the Metropolitan (London) police now."

The car park in Cockfosters, North London has been home to the illegally-parked Mercedes-Benz for the past 21 days and has racked up over R17 000 worth of parking fines.

It even has a warning notice to be scrapped if not collected in 14 days, but that hasn’t brought the missing owner out in a hurry either.

Finding the owner seems to be tricky for the car park owner since the car has an Irish licence plate the Daily Mail reported.
