One unfortunate car owner in Ashbourne realised what happens if you leave your car out in the road during Shrovetide.
The red Renault Kadjar was crushed by hundreds of people during a large hug on Belper Road, near the junction of Sturston Road.
Our picture editor, Victoria Wilcox, captured the moment just after 4pm when the ball was being wrestled between Up’ards and Down’ards players.
Luckily for the owner, the Shrovetide game has insurance which allows those who get their property damaged during the game a way to claim the costs back.
A nearby marshal took pictures of the car to present to the Shrovetide committee to proceed with an insurance claim.
As a precaution, a number of roads have also been closed from 1.30pm including Buxton Road, Market Place, Park Road, Dig Street, Compton Street, Sturston Road, St John Street and Clifton Road in Ashbourne.
