Crane falls into Dutch house after proposal goes wrong

A crane tipped over and crashed into the roof of a house in IJsselstein, near Utrecht in the Netherlands after a marriage proposal went wrong.

A man had hired a crane to drop him into his girlfriend's garden so he could propose in spectacular fashion.

However it fell into a neighbour's house and an attempt to remove it caused further damage.

No-one was hurt in the accident.
