North Yorkshire Police were called to Tuthill in the Old Town – a short and very narrow passageway off East Sandgate, which leads to the seafront – on the evening of Monday May 7.

Pictures circulating on social media show the car had driven off the road and down a set of steps, before getting stuck in front of a resident's door and blocking access.

The picture, which was posted online, drew several comments from residents who joked "you can't park there mate".
