Police were called by frustrated drivers to the blockage which had been caused by the inconsiderate motorist at the NCP Sheffield Hartshead Square car park on Campo Lane.

Sergeant Adam Wood, of the Broomhall neighbourhood policing team, said: “As the backlog of waiting cars built up, and car horns rose like a crescendo, the driver eventually returned.
