A three-year-old boy unlocked his parents' car and drove it down two embankments into a pub garden.

The boy started the car and drove the automatic Subaru Impreza down his parents' drive in Midhurst in Sussex.

He ended up in a garden of the nearby Duke of Cumberland Arms pub just before 08:00 BST on Wednesday.

Sussex Police said the boy had a "slight bump to the head". No one else was hurt but the car was damaged.

It is believed he was not close to venturing on to any main roads and managed to avoid hitting any members of the public.
