Norwegian 'dwarf' hits the road again

10:51 am on 21 February 2014

A 10-year-old Norwegian boy who took his parents' car for a joyride last week claiming he was a dwarf who forgot his driver's license, has hit the road again.

This time local police say he took off in the car of a relative the family was visiting and managed to drive about 30 kms before stopping.

When the parents realised what happened, they phoned police who sent out messages on Twitter and traffic radio asking the public for help.

Police say the boy eventually stopped and a bystander took his keys away.

The boy caused a stir last week when he loaded his 18-month-old sister in the family car and drove off to visit their grandparents 60 kms away, but ended up in a snowy ditch.
