A Mayfair couple is advertising for a £70,000-a-year chauffeur – but as long as they can drive both their Rolls-Royces as well as their Range Rover.

The successful applicant will clock up the hours too with a 59-and-a-half-hour week ferrying around their six-year-old daughter to and from school as well as to her clubs. 

They will also need to drive the wife around during the day.  

The couple are seemingly too posh to lift and with a newborn baby they expect the chauffeur to put their pram in the car.
