Two people have been injured after two cars and a minibus crashed into a Tesco supermarket in Berkshire.

Royal Berkshire Fire and Rescue Service said the collision happened at the Everland Road store in Hungerford shortly before 17:00 GMT.

Firefighters cut two people free from the vehicles. They have been taken to hospital.

Structural engineers were brought in to assess the building. A large crack was visible in a front pillar.

The store is expected to be open for business on Friday.

A Tesco spokesman said: "Police are investigating the incident at our Hungerford store and we are supporting them with their enquiries.

"Our thoughts and best wishes are with those involved in the incident."
