Double-yellow lines have been painted in an alleyway in Swindon that is too narrow to drive down.

Drivers are not allowed to park on roads painted with double-yellow lines - but the alley is so small, cars can't fit down it!

The alley is barely big enough for toy cars!

Local resident Nathalie Fisher said the alleyway was so narrow "you couldn't even fit a motorbike down it."

A council spokesman said: "Our contractors forgot just how big cars actually are when they painted this."
