"Well, there is only one piece of advice I can give you," said the wisest of wise men. "The secret of happiness is to see all the marvels of the world and never to forget the drops of oil on the spoon."

Tarmac but not here

How about this for a slightly idiosyncratic solution to the problem of a car being parked right where council workmen wanted to tarmac the road? To misquote the Everest windows advert, "Now I bet you didn't think they'd be doing that today, did you?"
As it happens, Keith was called out the following day to open a car parked behind the offending vehicle.
Fame at last!

"Wrexham council said it had no choice but to lay a new road surface around a car parked in a residential street." No tow trucks in Wrexham then?

They seemed to be of the opinion that it would be illegal to tow the car away, YP.
