The pair were pulled over for a love-making session on a narrow country lane in the county yesterday evening.

The car rolled down a hill and flipped on its side, blocking the road and leaving the randy couple trapped.

The unit said: “At an undisclosed location in Derbyshire the couple occupying this Yaris had parked up and were strengthening their relationship.

"Whilst doing so the handbrake has become disengaged and it rolled down a hill before flipping on its side. No injuries. #DriveToArrive.”

Dozens have since poked fun at the couple in response to the images.

One said: “Please practice safe sex and leave handbrake on.”

Another described ‘strengthening their relationship’ as “possibly the best euphemism ever.”

A third added: “Brings new meaning to ‘Did the earth move for you?"

“Dad, I’ve had a bit of a bang in the car….”, a fourth said.
