A car which became famous as a symbol of the recent flooding on the Somerset Levels is to be sold on by its owner in an eBay auction.

Mr Zajaczkowski was forced to abandon the car on Christmas Eve on the road into the village of Muchelney because of the rising water.

Writing in the sale description on eBay, Mr Zajaczkowski said: “Genuine Seat Toledo from the floods in Somerset.

“Obviously NOT in working condition, but my aim is to sell the car and donate the money to a Charity which is helping with the floods.

“Any Questions please message me. Collection Only.”

“It smells,” he said. “It is unbelievably disgusting in there.”
