THE mystery of how a Citroen convertible left in a Budleigh Salterton car park was found in a different spot has been solved.

Red and black Citroen convertible owner Zoe Hailes, 29, from Cardiff, and her boyfriend Nick Howard, 35, of Moormead, Budleigh, had been appealing for information as to how the car had moved - despite no signs of a break-in.
