    Boy, 10, takes toddler sis for a spin


    A 10-YEAR-OLD Norwegian boy took his toddler sister for a joyride in the family car, and ended up in a snowy ditch and posing as a dwarf, police and media reports said on Wednesday.

    A snowplough driver saw the automatic car stuck in the ditch, after the children had driven about 10km, according to the police.

    The boy told the driver that they were on their way to their grandmother's house about 30km away, the Norwegian daily Dagbladet reported.

    He later told another snowplough operator that he was a dwarf and had wound up in the ditch while making a hasty U-turn to go home for his driver's licence.

    The police returned the children safely to their parents.
