Best of April 1st

RESIDENTS have woken to find their cars wrapped in cling wrap in an April Fool's Day stunt that swept inner-city Melbourne.

The cling-film bandits struck at popular shopping precincts, outside railway stations and in sought-after residential areas, tightly wrapping cars in the plastic wrap.

At least 28 cars were reportedly wrapped including one vehicle in Clarendon St in South Melbourne, another on Domain Rd, South Yarra, Church St, Richmond and again at Clifton Hill railway station. found about six cars that had been wrapped in plastic film early this morning on Victoria Pde in East Melbourne.

Motorist James Rzan said it was a bizarre sight so early in the morning.

"There was a Holden ute outside Coles in Clarendon St that has been wrapped from top to bottom, even the tyres, the bonnet and the doors,'' Mr Rzan said. "I think somebody has lost their marbles, it's one out of the box for sure.'' The note on the ute said: "Happy April Fools Day love Evie''.

Police media Sen-Constable Melissa Seach said the wave of cling-wrapping was not being investigated by police because there had been no damage to vehicles. Police spokeswoman Julie-Anne Newman said it was unclear how many cars had been hit by the prank this morning.

Well done Evie! nice touch leaving scissors to let people un wrap their cars.
