A confused driver has ended up trapping his car on the steps of a Paris metro station, after mistaking it for the entrance to an underground car park.

"There's a sign saying 'Haussmann Parking' right in front... I made a mistake," the driver - identified only as Johan - told the AFP news agency.

The 26-year-old managed to brake in time to stop the vehicle, leaving the back wheels sticking out.

No-one was hurt in the incident, which immediately drew a crowd of onlookers.
