The private hire car was left in a no-parking zone on Tuesday afternoon.

It was reported that concerns were raised after the driver left a charger in his lighter socket.

Visitors were kept inside the castle for a short time while police investigated.

But the driver soon returned to his car and the castle was allowed to reopen.
