It seems its all too easy to park-up a car and forget all about setting that danged handbrake. 

This is what happened to one motorist’s car after parking on the Custom House car park.  The car evidently had a mind of its own and decided move a little closer to the to edge.

The runaway car enroached onto the public footpath along the harbour wall

Fortunately that  chain link fence was tough enough to prevent the runaway vehicle – a 2014 Hyundai – from encroaching too far onto the pedestrian footpath on the harbour perimeter … and  luckily no one was using the path at the time .
