Auto Trader has stepped in to replace a family’s Volkswagen Lupo after it was swallowed up by a sink hole in High Wycombe earlier this month.
Zoe Conran’s Lupo disappeared into a 30ft sinkhole in their driveway due to heavy rain and tunnel mining.
Conran said: “It is very surreal when you wake up and find your car has fallen through a big hole in the driveway.
“I never expected anyone to get in touch and offer us a new car, so I was surprised when Auto Trader said they wanted to get me a replacement Lupo.
“I am so grateful as it means I am now back on the road again.”
