Notably, there are at least two Bentleys, two Land Rovers, three Mercedes Benz and even the odd motorbike according to Daily Mail.

Abandoned: The vehicles have been abandoned by their owners, often over a space of years. Many were swallowed by the plants.
Over 200 cars have been dubbed ‘zombie cars’, in the car park.
They’re are stored in a ‘tyrant’s car park’ because of the value contained in the storage space.
Interestingly, some cars have been in the park for more than two years  as bushes and trees grow up around them, thus enveloping them from the outside world.

Majority of the vehicles are involved in ongoing criminal case either directly or indirectly while others have been abandoned because they were ready to be scrapped or their owners lacked the correct paperwork.
The cars have become a headache for the local authorities, and they dont know what to do with them.
