THE NETHERLANDS - AD writes that a vehicle hire company has organised a parallel parking championship for women in an attempt to banish the myth that women can't park a car properly.

The company's marketing manager says, "Many women are afraid to parallel park as they don't think they'll be able to get it in". She adds that the fear stems from the old prejudice that women and automobiles just don't go together and "we want to banish that myth forever".

The company has refused to say exactly where the championship will take place except for, "it will be a street in Amsterdam on 22 May".
