Motorists had a shock on Thursday evening (August 22) when they saw the small red Vauxhall Corsa perched on the edge of Peas Hill Roundabout in March.

"When the SatNav said 'go straight over the roundabout' it didn't mean literally", someone on social media joked after images emerged of the feat online.

The driver, a man in his 50s, was arrested at the scene on suspicion of drink driving and was taken to King's Lynn Police Investigation Centre.

Pictures - taken by eye witnesses - show the car with all four wheels off the ground after nearly ending up in the centre of the roundabout.
