Firefighters from Bracknell and Wokingham were called to a house in Keephatch Road at 1am, where an elderly lady in her 80s had been woken by the Ford vehicle crashing into the front of her house.

The driver of the car had safely got out of the car by the time fire crews had arrived.

Firefighters spent an hour and a half ensuring the house was structurally safe using support stanchions.

The occupant’s son was also in the house at the time, but emergency services confirmed no one had been hurt.
