He said: "I came home from work to my flat and saw that all the lights were on.

"I then saw a police officer with a fireman in the lobby, and they said: 'you best prepare for a shock'.

"I thought 'oh my God, what's happened?' and I walked into the flat and saw the car.

"This car was already parked in the carpark but had been pushed by another car.

Mr Tidlow is currently staying in a hotel, and feels 'lucky' for the timing of the accident.

"As luck would have it, I'm just about to move out anyway," he said.

He added: "Hopefully I can move into my new place next week.

"I want to say thank you to Haslams Estate Agents and also Hallmark Property Management who have been incredibly helpful.

"I was very lucky that all none of my possessions were damaged.

"People tell me I should be angry but I say 'at who?' - it was nobody's fault, no-one was hurt and there was nobody in."
