IT'S every bad driver's worst nightmare - getting stuck while parking - but that's just compounded when someone films it.

Footage of one woman's terrible attempt to get into a space in the UK city of Hull on December 23 has gone viral.

Onlookers were transfixed as they watched the driver try to inch into a space at an awkward angle for about three minutes, at one point appearing to scrape the car next to her.

Instead of reversing out to adjust the angle, she keeps the car moving forward until she gets stuck.

"Why doesn't she just come out? She's just going to ruin her car and the person's car," one woman is heard saying on the recording.

"Why is she going in at that angle for?"

"That's crazy," a man adds, saying, "This is hilarious."

At one point the woman gets out of the car to check the damage and eventually asks another neighbouring car to move so she can straighten up. She then drives off.

Tony Roberts filmed the incident from an upstairs cafe. The footage has since been watched more than 1 million times.

"Saw this in town today, she drove off after damaging the guy's car. I left a note for him, he has the video evidence now," he wrote in a post on his Facebook page.

Mr Roberts said he noticed the car drive to the end of the road, turn around and try to park in the parking bay from the wrong angle.

"That is when I started to video it. It got worse as the driver just could not understand which way to turn the wheel," he said.
