Step too far for driver
A NIGHT-TIME journey proved a step too far for one motorist.
Police and fire officers were called to Mount Pleasant in Swansea after reports that a car had careered down a flight of pedestrian steps and come to a halt at the bottom.
It is not clear how the Ford Fiesta came to take the wrong turn and go for a bumpy journey down the steps at Primrose Hill but South Wales Police said the driver had been "spoken to" and that no further action was taken against him.
The damaged car was later taken away on the back of a lorry.

The incident happened just before midnight on Sunday. It is understood nobody was injured in the crash.
A police spokesman said: "Officers were called following reports that a car had become impaled on railings.
"The driver, a local man, has been spoken to by officers."
One witness who lives nearby said: "There is a blind spot at the top and if you are unfamiliar with the area you can't tell that there are steps the other way."
Mid and West Wales Fire and Rescue Service said its officers had attended the scene to make the car safe following reports of a vehicle in a "precarious position".
