Lithuania's mayor cruising for a crushing

The mayor of Lithuania's capital, Vilnius, has been filmed using an armoured vehicle to crush a car parked illegally in a cycle lane.

"That's what will happen if you park your car illegally," Mayor Arturas Zuokas, an avid cyclist, says in a clip posted on the Vilnius City website.

The apparent owner then arrives to see his wrecked Mercedes being towed.

The stunt was shot over the weekend for a popular Swedish TV series, 99 Things You Should Do Before You Die.

BBC Breakfast's Charlie Stayt and Kate Silverton tell us more.
