They say you learn from your mistakes - so it's safe to assume this woman will never ever ever forget to put on the handbrake after parking on a slope again.

Maria Rizzo, 34, stopped to admire the spectacular view from the street above this house in Alassio in northern Italy.

But she was so intent on taking a picture that she forgot to put on the handbrake.

Her car rolled away, smashing through a barrier and plunging down the hill onto the house below.

It broke through the roof and landed in the bathroom, with the front end wedged in an iron bath which broke the fall and stopped the Fiat Panda plunging further into the house.

A police spokesman said: 'Luckily no one was home at the time - so nobody was hurt, but the owner of the property did have a surprise when they arrived home.'

That barrier couldn't have been safe, or what that lady needs is a new car with an electronic hand-brake which applies automatically when the car has been stopped for a few seconds.
