(The Sun) A German man has been left with a huge bill after his Amazon Echo tried to organise a house party while he was away.

Hamburg cops were forced to break into Oliver Haberstroh’s flat after neighbours complained about deafening music blasting from inside – but found the apartment empty after searching each room for someone to tell off.

Mr Haberstroh claims he walked out of his flat to meet friend on Friday night after checking that the lights and music were switched off.
