A hearse carrying the body of a woman has been found in Munich, a day after its driver forgot where he had parked it.

The 24-year-old driver employed by a Polish funeral home had decided to take a break in the German city while driving the body from Italy to Poland.

He apparently thought he'd parked it near the main train station, but couldn't find it when he returned.

Police were called, and asked residents to look out for the vehicle.

A passing motorist spotted the white-curtained hearse sitting near the Isar River.

It was not damaged, and the body was inside.

Police suspect alcohol was involved in the incident.
