A parking firm is still battling to have a broken-down Mercedes removed from one of its sites - more than two years after it was abandoned.
Middlesex-based Apcoa Parking said it had been unable to trace the owner of the car, which was dumped at its multi-storey facility in Ladywood, Birmingham, during 2012.
The saloon, which has not been reported stolen, would by now have attracted a notional parking charge - at a daily rate of £13 - of at least £9,000.
But it is understood the firm is not seeking payment of the charge and is currently waiting for Birmingham City Council to remove the vehicle.
A spokesman for Apcoa said: "We have written to the owner and we didn't get a reply.
"This particular vehicle has a broken back axle. It's probable that the owner deems it to be more hassle than it's worth for him to come and remove it."
