A car has crashed into a house in Suffolk - driving through the kitchen wall while the owners were indoors.

It happened at Cattawade Street, Brantham, near its junction with New Village, at about 16:45 BST on Monday.

Three people in the Peugeot 206 were cut free by fire crews from Manningtree and Colchester and taken to hospital.

It is understood they were not seriously injured and no-one in the house was hurt. The car was embedded half-way through the outside wall.

The Hammond family, who live at the house, is having to stay elsewhere while structural engineers assess the damage.

It is not expected that the car will be removed until later on Tuesday or Wednesday.
