Structural engineers have been  called out to assess the damage to the house, and the electricity was turned off as a precaution.

The driver hit the gas pedal and collided with porch, said  shocked neighbours.

It is understood that emergency crews from Police and the ambulance  were called just after 8am to the road.

A  couple who live in the road  have described their shock after a car collided with the  home following crash.

Peter and Rita Barry , both in their eighties, were  having breakfast watching TV in the living room of their home, , when they heard a ‘hell of a bang and a lot of smashing glass’ outside

Mr Barry, who has lived in the road with his wife for the past 18 years, said he had just switched on the TV when he heard a hell of a bang.  I am just glad that everyone is alright. I know the property has just been sold.
