An internet prankster has been branded stupid after parking a supercar worth more than a quarter of a million pounds outside an NHS hospital in an area needed for emergency staff.
The driver, who is thought to be wannabe YouTube star Doctor Troller, left the red Lamborghini Aventador outside the Chelsea and Westminster hospital in London on Tuesday.

Chelsea and Westminster Hospital is in the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea, which had recorded 85 coronavirus cases as of Monday.
The borough council said they had spoken to the driver who had been asked to remove the vehicle at the request of the police and the hospital.

"It is not the time for practical jokes and baiting of public service officers who are working incredibly hard to keep our streets clear for vital NHS staff and key workers."
