The owner of a flashy car parked in Devon was in for a rude – and stinky – awakening after locals coated the vehicle with dead fish.
A sexy Aston Martin V8 Vantage was parked in the private spaces of Salcombe fish quay on Thursday – to the outrage of local residents.
And the car had been left abandoned for so long that it had gather not one, but two fines.
A sign clearly states that the spaces are not to be used by members of the public, with a message reading: “Reserved parking for fisherman only.”
DevonLive reports that angry locals branded the owner of the car “rude” and “ignorant” after they noticed the vehicle parked in two spaces for a number of days.
Taking revenge, locals threw dead fish at the car – with one large catch landing on top of the two parking tickets that were already wedged under the window wiper.
The fish will have caused quite a stink for th driver who reportdely left the car “for quite some time.”
Further insult was delivered for the driver as a wooden pallet was left at the rear of the car, with a heavy, filled barrels plonked on top of it.
Local reports say the combined weight of the items stacked behind the car came to half a tonne, or 500kg.
The car had disappeared by Friday after being in the spot for a number of days.
The model of Aston Martin is due to hit the big screen later this year when the latest Bond film, Not Time To Die is finally in cinemas.
The film is due for release in the UK on 12 November after being delayed by the coronavirus pandemic.
The film had originally been planed for release in March, but was delayed as the deadly Covid-19 virus caused lockdown around the world.
