This wasn't me but made the news!
I know the owner,the lightweight has been sold on and advertised as having "one careful owner" :lol:
And it failed its MOT at the first attempt every year since 2008!
The handbrake failed on this occasion,the lightweight was parked on a hill and unattended before it rolled downhill into the house! :o

That's why I think the government's decision to scrap the MoT for vehicles over 40 is so flawed. They claim that people with "classics" will look after them better than those with modern cars - but, from my examination of MoT stats on old Land Rovers, that simply isn't the case and, if the MoT wasn't picking problems up every year, there would/will be many many more unsafe vehicles on the road. And for what? An owner saves £55 a year.
