A fast food delivery vehicle ended up on top of a parking meter, after the driver "lost control while reversing".

Oz's Pizza and Kebab House in Dawlish, Devon, said on Facebook its spare delivery vehicle had been involved in an accident on Friday evening.

"We are pleased to confirm (with the exception of the driver who sustained extensive bruising to his ego) nobody was hurt in this incident," it said.

The driver said he was "immensely grateful the car had not hit anyone".

The statement explained: "The driver (who had almost completed work-based trial and training) lost control of the automatic vehicle whilst reversing and was subsequently forced to leave the car parked on top of a parking ticket machine."
