Dutch brothers aged five and seven caught joyriding
TWO brothers, aged five and seven, who crashed a car after a mile-long joyride, were held by Dutch police for a short time.
"A police patrol saw a car with the doors open and two young boys stood next to it" in Bloemendael, west of Amsterdam, police spokeswoman Lenny Beijerbergen said.
"The seven-year-old boy told police that he had driven the car around 1.5km," Ms Beijerbergen added.
A policeman tweeted a photo of the crash scene, saying that the car was the boys' grandmother's.
"At least I had my seat belt on! And my brother was in the child's seat," the seven-year-old is reported to have said to police.
"The boys were taken to the police station, given a talking to . . . then they were taken home," Ms Beijerbergen said.
