“They came out to see if I was alright and they were so kind. I’m not hurt, just really embarrassed about what has happened.”   

A notice stuck on the front door of the shop states that users of the car park do so at their own risk. “The management will not accept liability for any accidents, damage or loss incurred,” it adds.
