Thank you so much for your reply. I was going crazy trying to think how this could have happened with a parking brake on! I was so stressed as it could have rolled out and hit a passerby which would have been so much worse than the other car. So I need to get a mechanic to check the parking pad brakes? In answer to your question I had the car in neutral. I mentioned a incline but honestly it was like a 5% gradient....I had to lie on the ground to check for the income as to the naked eye it looks flat. It certainly wasn't a hill of any kind. I would have thought a parking brake could hold a car on a tiny incline. The other people with me said they couldn't even see the incline. Checked the manufacturers handbook and it does not say to park in gear.....I know it's best practice, I accept that, but a parking brake should hold a car......or so I thought!
