OSLO (REUTERS) - A 10-year-old Norwegian boy who took his parents' car for a joyride last week, claiming he was a dwarf who forgot his driver's licence, has hit the road again.

This time he took off in the car of a relative the family was visiting and managed to drive about 30km before stopping, local police said on Thursday.

When the parents realised what happened, they phoned police who sent out messages over Twitter and traffic radio asking the public for help.

The boy eventually stopped and a bystander took his keys away, police said.
