Holidaymaker discovers his car stored in muddy field using car tracker

A car owner came back from holiday to discover his car was parked in a muddy field instead of the secure parking he had been promised.

The traveller decided to track where his car had been all week after he landed at Manchester Airport using his car tracker. He had expected the car to be stored in a secure, gated facility but instead it was in a field with no CCTV or security whatsoever.

He reported the incident to manchestereveningnews.co.uk and said that he booked the parking service online. The firm picked his car up from the airport and told him it would be stored securely.

"I was horrified when it showed where my car had been kept while I was on holiday," he said. "My car had been stored in a field on Hollin Lane in Styal where there is no security fence, CCTV or any kind of lighting and also this is clearly visible from the main road."

A spokesperson from Manchester Airport has reminded passengers that they should park their car in one of their secure car parks during their holiday.

Currently, the airport has eight car parks supplying 15,595 spaces but there are plans to create an additional car park - creating an extra 9,000 spaces, reports bbc.co.uk.
