Finding a place to park along the street can be a nightmare, no matter where you live. But police in Las Palmas were more than surprised by one resident's apparent solution.
Police posted pictures on Monday of a white hatchback Daewoo Matiz without license plates parked on top of a house's flat roof with the caption: "This is what they call 'the high life' parking."

Authorities were first alerted to the strange parking arrangement by a neighbour.
How the car ended up on top of the house remains a bit of a mystery. Police said they suspect someone could have had the help of a crane.
Police said they examined the house's structure to determine whether there was a risk of the car falling through.
According to TelevisiónCanaria, police have asked the car's owner to remove it from the roof.
