Car abandoned in floods put up for sale on eBay

A submerged car that was abandoned because of flooding on the Somerset Levels has been put for sale on eBay.

Hubert Zajaczkowski, 21, was forced to leave his Seat Toledo on a road near the village of Muchelney on Christmas Eve because of the rising water.

For weeks, the five-door silver petrol car remained stranded under several feet of water, filmed and photographed by national and international media.

The 15-year-old 1.8L saloon, which he had bought for £600, was submerged for more than two months but as the flood levels receded Mr Zajaczkowski was able this week to reclaim his car.

He has decided to sell the car, which has done 110,000 miles, on eBay with the profits donated to charity helping flood victims.
