German man finds his car - two years after forgetting where he parked itGetty

We all know how it feels to wander aimlessly around a car park because you've forgotten where you parked your car.

So spare a thought for the German man who took two years to find his car after he forgot where he left it after a night out drinking.

The Mirror reports that the man, who is now 33, lost his car after a night out in December 2010.

When he couldn't find it the next morning he reported it missing to police in Munich - but it wasn't discovered until last month when a traffic warden noticed that the parking ticket had expired.

It had been safely parked 2.5 miles away from where the driver thought he'd left it, and the boot was still full of £32,500 worth of tools.

Police spokesman Alexander Lorenz told Reuters: "The weird thing is that it turned up so far away, although the owner was pretty sure of where he had left it."
