EDINBURGH, Scotland, Feb. 4 (UPI) -- Construction crews resurfacing a parking lot in Scotland said they left a small island with a ramp for a Mercedes-Benz left parked in the way.

The workers said they arrived Friday morning to resurface the pavement at Edinburgh's Waverley train station and discovered a motorist had parked in the cordoned-off area overnight, The Mirror reported Monday.

"We had to work round it," one worker said.

The crew resurfaced around the Mercedes, leaving the luxury car on a small unpaved island with a ramp to allow for escape when the motorist turns up to claim it.
