They do not have any information about the whether the Daihatsu was stolen or had been involved in any crime.

"It is funny that someone has stuck a Specsavers' brochure under one of the windscreen wipers, though."

Canterbury City Council says it has started the process to have the vehicle removed.

Spokesman Leo Whitlock said: "We have to put a notice on the car giving the owner time to contact us and claim ownership. If no-one gets in touch, it is then removed.
 
"However, because of the vehicle's condition and where it has been left, we are trying to expedite the process."
