It’s not the first time dramatic images have shown a car that crashed through a home.

A vehicle smashed into a bungalow in Cambridgeshire while the owner was watching TV last August.

The driver was cut free from the vehicle following the incident at Fleming Court at around 6.15pm.

The bungalow owner, who lives in a retirement housing complex, was uninjured despite the front of her home being destroyed, the BBC reported.

The homeowner’s daughter said: "She was watching the telly when she heard a loud bang, then she heard all the sirens.”

She revealed her mum was “deeply shocked”, adding: "The driver must have mounted the pavement and come all the way across the grass."

Police did not confirm what caused the incident.
