A RETIRED Aberystwyth couple are at their wits’ end after a student neighbour parked his car on their driveway for the summer break and headed home to China.

Tom and Julia Ebenezer, of Glan Rheidol, Llanbadarn Fawr, said they came home one day to discover a black Citroën had been left on their drive without their permission.

To add insult to injury, there was also a note asking the couple to look after a cactus plant!

Police and the council have told the Ebenezers they can do nothing about it. And the couple have been warned that they must be careful not to damage the vehicle or they could be liable.

A note left for Mr and Mrs Ebenezer by the car owner said: “Hi, it’s Jack from Glan Rheidol, thank you so much for let me park my car here, if you don’t mind, can you help me to take care of my plant as well please.

“I will bring some present from China for you. If there is any problem, please call me. I will be back at 15 September. Thank you so much.”

Speaking to the Cambrian News this week, Mr Ebenezer said: “The person who owns the car is a Chinese student who is renting a property across the road. He seems to have gone home for the summer.

“He has also left a card with a cactus plant asking us to look after it until his return on 15 September.

“Looking out through the window, all you see is this black car. It is very, very annoying. It is parked on our property.”
