Melbourne, Dec 27 (ANI): A man in the UK spent three days driving around southern England, before he was found on Christmas Day, after his wife's flight was switched from Heathrow airport to Gatwick airport during last week's travel chaos.
Mohammed Bellazrak apparently traveled nearly 3218 km as he desperately tried to find his way home after dropping off his wife at Gatwick on December 23, reports News.com.au.
The journey that should have lasted two-and-a-half hours became a 66-hour marathon.
The 72-year-old ended up sleeping in his car before trying again and again to work out his route back to Trowbridge in Wiltshire.
He was eventually found on Christmas Day, still at the wheel of his Peugeot 307, when he triggered a police camera armed with number plate recognition and was flagged down.
Bellazrak had driven his wife to Heathrow and then to Gatwick so that she could catch a flight to visit her family in Morocco. (ANI)
