A LAMBORGHINI, parked in a disabled bay outside Blackburn Leisure Centre, has raised a few eyebrows.

Gym-goers and swimmers did a double-take when they spotted the £160,000 Huracan parked up off Feilden Street.

But others, when the image was shared on social media, questioned whether the driver of the supercar, which has a top speed of more than 200mph, was a legitimate blue badge holder.

The owner of the Huracan, who did not want to give his name, confirmed to the Lancashire Telegraph that he was not a blue badge holder.

And he added: "It's a nice car and I didn't want to damage it.

"It cost me £160,000 so I didn't want to it to be scratched.

"It's quite low to the ground so I couldn't really leave it in the multi-storey car park."

He said he is from Cambridge and was visiting the Blackburn area to see his brother.
