Workers were forced to pave around a BMW as it was repaving a road because the owner failed to respond to requests to move it.

Those living near the road in Darlington, Durham were stunned to see a new road, only a large part of which remains – perhaps now the city’s biggest pothole.

The works on Huntley Street were announced on street signs advising local residents that the road would be closed on May 9th and 10th.

Traffic cones were even placed along the road as a reminder.

But a motorist ignored the warnings and left a gray BMW on a stretch of road.

Pictures taken yesterday show that road works around the vehicle were completed, leaving a stain under the parked car that worker teams could not reach.

The parked car was also noticed by social media users, one of whom commented: “Oops. Someone didn’t read the street signs.”

Others speculated that the owner could be on vacation or in the hospital.

But one commenter said: “What annoys me is they had to move the cones to park the car. The signs were there a few days before the work was to be carried out.”

Another added: “There’s always one, should have paved over it.”

A Darlington Council spokeswoman said: “As the vehicle in question was parked in an area with no parking restrictions, we are unable to take any action against the driver on this occasion.

“Attempts have been made to contact the owner to ask them to remove it but so far to no avail.

“This means the resurfacing has been done around the vehicle leaving a patch – this will be done at a later date when the car is finally removed, but it means an additional cost to the community and the patch will be visible.

“With the aim of avoiding such situations, signs indicating planned maintenance work are put up in good time.”
