Today's award goes to an inept car thief in England.
A man who attempted to steal a Mini Cooper in Northumberland became wedged on a narrow set of stairs and had to be freed from the vehicle.
The car, with Union flag branding on its roof, was discovered in the Castle Walk area of Carlisle Park, in Morpeth, on Monday night. The matter was reported to Northumbria Police whose officers cordoned off the path.
However, the car remained in its awkward position all morning, prompting those passing to stop and take pictures.
Police ... said: "Emergency services attended and the driver was freed from the vehicle, a red Mini Cooper S. He was not injured during the incident.
"Enquiries into the incident are ongoing but a 31-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of aggravated vehicle taking, and remains in police custody."
