Auto Trader replaces teen’s Volkswagen Lupo lost to sinkhole


Earlier this month, a 30ft (9m) sinkhole swallowed teenager Zoe Conran’s Volkswagen Lupo in High Wycombe earlier. Digital retailer Auto Trader has been in touch with the family, and offered a replacement car to lift Zoe’s spirit.

Zoe Conran said, “It is very surreal when you wake up and find your car has fallen through a big hole in the driveway. I never expected anyone to get in touch and offer us a new car, so I was surprised when Auto Trader said they wanted to get me a replacement Lupo. I am so grateful as it means I am now back on the road again.”

Now she can get back on the road, in her new Volkswagen Lupo and back to life as normal with her friends and family”.
