DIY Car Park crammed with homeless folk.

Good news today as Philip and Victoria Sherlock from Warrington, who have been forced to live in their Ford Focus car due to spiralling debt, have been temporarily housed in a local hotel. The desperate plight of the couple was televised on ITV' s Good Morning Britain and pulled on the heart strings of the nation's viewers.

However, the problems for millions of couples finding themselves in similar circumstances has led to thousands of new towns popping up in DIY superstore car parks and lay-byes up and down over the UK. One particular site is found South of Sunderland where 13,000 cars can be found and if not for a local farmer , would be forced onto the open road.

Paddy Doherty, Irish traveller and TV personality claims these debt ridden families are giving the travelling community a bad name. Amongst his gripes about these folk is the rubbish they leave, laundry hanging from bushes, the unregistered keeping of horses, bare knuckle fights and poaching. He wants the government to act now before their image is tarnished forever.

David Cameron, Prime Minister, claimed that the 'debt folk' are as mythical as food banks and reminded us that the country is getting back on its knees. 'We aim to deliver 250,000 new homes in the next parliament and anyone qualifying for a mortgage would get one. If you are in debt and loose your property then you deserve to face the consequences', he said.

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
