Emergency services were called to a business in Winchester after a car rammed into the building.

Recovery specialists used a crane to winch out the 320 Mercedes that was embedded into the three storey Georgian town house in Southgate Street after a pensioner lost control of it and became trapped.

A shocked office worker spoke of his shock and terror as he witnessed the driver trying to reverse and then hitting a car before ploughing into the Grade 2 listed building.

He said, “The car engine was revving. I think the man may have had his foot stuck on the gas pedal. I was really scared. I just ran and took cover by the fireplace as I thought the car was going to carry on shooting forward.

“The emergency services arrived very quickly and they help get the driver out of the car.”
