In a scene reminiscent of one found a post apocalyptic horror film, a solitary car sits unloved but unscathed as piles of rubble lay scattered around it.
But these aren't screen grabs from Roland Emmerich's latest movie, the pictures actually hail from Taiyuan, northern China, where an enormous car park was being demolished to make room for re-development.
> Builders had apparently tried to contact the owner of the lone vehicle and waited 10 days for someone to show up and claim it.
No one did, so they flattened everything around the car, making it very difficult for the car's owner to retrieve their property but it did produce some rather interesting photos.
This isn't the first time impatient Chinese builders have decided to go ahead with a project despite obvious hurdles.
Last year, road maintenance workers in Wenling laid a motorway around an elderly couple's home after they refused to green light planning permission.
