MUDDLED motorists in London admit to driving thousands of miles in completely the wrong direction.

Four-out-of-five admit to getting lost regularly, travelling an average 25 miles after making mistakes, survey results reveal this-morning.

Drivers on average clock up 1,500 miles in London when lost-that's the distance from London to Moscow.

The study by Continental Tyres, which polled 4,000 motorists aged 17 to 65, found 83 per cent have taken a wrong turn and become lost.

One-in-seven owned up to having an accident or running out of petrol when lost.

The survey revealed couples argue at least once a month about how to get from A to B and have spent nearly 90 minutes driving around disorientated.
