Juan García from Wimbledon had his son safely strapped in his seat and had set off early one morning.

But it quickly turned bad when he realised his brakes weren’t working.

“I kept calm, I thought I was somehow pressing the clutch, but I realised I wasn’t.

“I shifted down and ended up on the wrong side of the road, then pulled over with the handbrake.


“Luckily I have a manual handbrake and not an electric one.

“It was all very civilised, but it was lucky that nobody was coming the other way.

“Getting it to a safe place, I was using the handbrake to slow down and the car was not liking it, it was beeping and flashing at me.”

Foxes have been known to become addicted, despite the fact that the toxicity causes them severe digestive problems.

Car owners have been forced to block the areas around their car’s wheels while it’s parked to avoid paying repair fees.

“In the end, we had to take the train to nursery, except the trains were cancelled. So dropping him off was a two-hour round trip,” continued Juan.

An AA driver was called out who confirmed it was the foxes to blame and that they knew of countless cases in the local area.

The foxes were after the sweet-tasting fluid and there have been numerous cases locally
