A 25-year-old British holidaymaker either began or possibly ended her holiday in the Algarve in the worst possible way. She drove her rental car into one of the signature statues at Faro airport.
Say reports, the young woman had to be taken to hospital though her injuries were described as light.
The rental car came off worse, with ‘extensive damages, especially to the front”, writes tabloid Correio da Manhã.
The upward-gazing statue, however, remained unscathed.
