Mechanics trying to figure out why the car would not exceed 40mph were more than a little surprised to find that the engine was filled with nuts, stashed there by a squirrel - every space and opening had been filled – with nuts.

‘It was rammed solid with nuts,’ said David Evans, who owns the garage.
‘I’ve been doing this job for 18 years and I’ve never seen anything like it. I couldn’t believe it.
‘(The animal) had been getting into the garage, where she parked the car, and had been climbing right inside the engine bay and squeezing himself into the air filter.’
