Dopey driver forgot he left his car at Lidl after reporting it stolen


A DOPEY driver reported his car had been nicked — forgetting he had left it at a supermarket.

Lewis Jermaine, 33, popped to his local Lidl in his blue Ford Focus.

The brickie left the hatchback — which he uses as a van for work — in the store’s car park.

But when he finished shopping he walked back home — and was stunned that his motor was not outside.

The penny dropped five hours later when he finally realised what he had done.

Lewis, of Grimsby, Lincs, posted on Facebook: “Stolen: This morning I joined the unwanted club for having my van and livelihood taken."

He put out his registration number and urged anyone offered a bricklayer’s tools to let him know.

Later Lewis — married to Jenny, 33 — posted: “Me, being a complete idiot, drove to the shop last night then walked home not thinking.

"So turns out it wasn’t stolen and I’m just a div.

“Just gonna have a massive parking fine now.”

Pals poked fun at him. Scott Wilde joked: “The ‘thieves that stole it’ parked it at Lidl, locked it, did some shopping and went home. Don’t ever call anyone stupid again.”
