A car that crashed into the side of a house caused a gas leak that led to dozens of neighbouring properties being evacuated, police have said.

The white Mercedes hit the property on Perryfields in Burgess Hill, West Sussex, at about 18:50 BST on Friday.

Appealing for information, Sussex Police said no-one was hurt in the crash, but about 60 homes were evacuated while the house's gas supply was made safe.

All residents have since returned home.
