Ghost Busted

A car was pulled over in Plattling, Germany, when police officers saw it was being driven by a skeleton! However, the driver was found to be a 23-year-old Brit named Martin Williams.
He told police he'd snapped up the plastic life-size model at a local flea market but strapped it into his front passenger seat because he thought it would be damaged in the boat.

A police spokesman said: 'It was only when we stopped the car that we realised it was a British right hand drive car - and the skeleton was therefore in the passenger seat.

"We could not make any charges against him as it is not illegal to have a plastic skeleton in your car."

I wondered about that. I supposed either the German police or the Austrian journalist didn't quite understand the driver using the British term "boot" for the car trunk.
Abusive comment hidden. (Show it anyway.)
