Here's whats been happening - any advice would be gratefully received! Thanks

2 weeks ago, car cuts out when maneuvering out of a parking spot - takes a few turns to get it going but then ok - never happened before.

2 days ago - reversing into a parking spot and engine dies. Turns over but wont catch. Battery drains the more I try.

Yesterday - starts ok with jump leads - ok at traffic lights etc until I'm reversing into parking spot and once again dies, wont restart. Battery once again dead

Try a new battery if it still happens its most likely the altenator .check your battery connections & make sure there tight and corrosion free.
