John Betts, who lives nearby, saw emergency services helping someone trapped in one of the cars.

"It looked pretty horrendous when I saw them," he said.

"I saw the frontage of the house was totally taken out and the curtains were billowing out of the house.

"I know the lady there, that's why I've come down to see if she was all right."
