I lost the V5C to my car, which has been abroad for 10 years - how do I get it back to the UK?

My 10-year-old car has been in Spain for nine years and 11 months. I've lost the V5C, so what do I say at Dover when I try to bring it back to the UK?

Get a V62 form, fill it in and send it off. But I think if the car was not originally declared as exported using the original V5C and was not put on a SORN, you're in trouble because the car has been in Spain for 9 years and 11 months illegally. You have potentially evaded 9 years and 11 months annual tax. V5C application here:
