Emma Watson was left searching in vain for a lift home on the Hogwarts Express after her car was impounded by police.
The Harry Potter star, 33, saw her £30,000 Audi A3 towed away after she left it ‘illegally’ parked in Stratford-Upon-Avon.
It appeared the actress had failed to clock a no parking sign and accidentally left it blocking one of the entrances to a car park.
Watson was photographed talking with officers in an attempt to free her car as it was loaded onto the back of a tow truck, in pictures obtained by MailOnline.
The Little Women actress was reportedly enjoying a night out in the nearby Rose and Crown pub before she came ‘flying out’ according to eye witnesses as the drama unfolded.
The publication reported that Watson failed to realise she had trapped any fellow drivers in the car park with her vehicle.
A local pizza restaurant manager is said to have spent over three hours trying to locate the car’s driver before giving in and calling police to come and sort the matter.
