Squirrel driving me nuts

`Where does a squirrel hide his nuts — all 2,000 of them? In the engine of David Bowler’s car, explaining why it kept conking out. [..]

The 18-month-old car had been losing power and mechanics in Fareham, Hants, found the squirrel was using the air filter as a larder. [..]

The rodent had grabbed the nuts — weighing 3.5lbs — from a garden bird feeder.

It crawled up the intake pipe when the car was parked in David’s garage.’
