A video has emerged showing a woman attempting to park her car - before giving up after ten attempts and driving off.

The footage, captured by Dean Leggett in Southend, shows the driver of the silver Citroen C1 repeatedly trying to get into the space.

On her first attempt, she goes in forwards, but ends up almost in the middle of the road. She then reverses, but this also goes wrong so she tries once again.

She then manages to get her front wheels too close to the kerb.

After much more driving backwards and forwards, she eventually gives up and takes an easier spot along the road.
