South Africa police 'recover car stolen 22 years ago'

A South African man is to be reunited with his car 22 years after it was stolen in the capital, Pretoria.

"The car was still in mint condition; nothing was missing - not even the battery," Derrick Goosen told South Africa's News24 website.

Police in the northern province of Limpopo stopped the Toyota Corolla at a road block last November.

One officer then spent months tracing the owner, as the registration and chassis numbers had been removed.
