Perhaps on a mission to score the closest possible carpark, a man has driven his tiny car through a mall's front doors.

Parking at the Muripark shopping centre in Muri, Aargau, Switzerland, a man drove through automatic doors to the foot of some escalators.

Footage shows the man leaving the car park and manoeuvring through the doors and coming to a halt.

It is believed the motorist drove through the shopping centre as a joke on Shrove Tuesday.

Spokesman Markus Eugster said: "It happened on the 23rd of February around 3pm.

"On this day it was Shrove Tuesday in the region, so we have assumed it is an intentional Shrove Tuesday joke and not a driving error.

"For this reason, we refrain from filing a criminal complaint."
