An unlucky father smashed a brand-new shower screen as he tried to bring it home – and caught it all on camera.
Funny footage showed Michael Roberts, 58, breaking the glass outside his house in Tamworth, Staffordshire.
He arrived at the property with partner Sharon Cantrill, 48 – and neither can believe what happened.
The broken glass covered a 72 sq ft area and took an hour to clear, hotel manager Michael said.
His arms were covered in little scratches but no one was seriously hurt.

Father-of-three Michael had left the bathroom to last after refurbishing the whole property
Michael said: ‘I guess the corner caught on the concrete step. It just exploded, like someone had put a bullet through it.
‘I was a bit shocked but I mean what are you going to do – I just had to laugh.
‘I just said, ‘You better get the camera’.
‘Sharon’s face was a picture. She wasn’t sure at first and then she started laughing as soon as I did.’
The shower screen, which cost a couple of hundred pounds, was sat outside with other building materials on September 25

Michael, a father-of-three, had done a refurbishment of the whole property, leaving the bathroom till last.
The shower screen, which cost a couple of hundred pounds, had been sitting outside with other materials before its fateful trip inside on Monday September 25.
Michael had to buy another, which he fitted the same day.
He said: ‘Poor Sharon had waited ages for a shower – fortunately she was able to use one at the hotel.’
