The Ford was found buried in the garden

John Brayshaw, from Heckmonwike, West Yorkshire, found the vehicle, believed to be a Ford Popular, whilst doing a spot of gardening as he is at home due to the coronavirus outbreak.

He said: ''It's not something you find every day - it is literally in the middle of my garden.

''It's just weird how it's down there.''

John is appealing to those with any information about how it got into the garden to get in touch.

He added that the car, which is grey in colour, was mostly intact with its engine and registration plate.

It is believed to be the Ford Popular, which were manufactured in the UK between 1953 and 1962.

He said: ''I'd love to be able to get the car out, but I don't think it is possible by hand.''
