House owner Mike Brown said: "I've been working away from home. My wife rang me to say a car had come into the house, which was a bit of a shock.

"We're trying to find out how quickly we can get back in and what we can do in the interim - it's for sale too at the moment believe it or not."

In addition to striking the house the car also demolished 20ft (6m) of fence, said a neighbour.
