A car has crashed into a front garden, flipping on to its roof.

The red Vauxhall Corsa crashed into a front garden in Mill Road, Burgh Castle, on the corner.

Police were called to the road which is near the Cherry Tree Holiday Park to reports of a one vehicle crash on Monday afternoon.

The East of England Ambulance Service sent paramedics to the scene to assess two people, who did not need any treatment.

Cheryl Swallow’s mother lives at house with the front garden where the car landed.

She said is was only a matter of time before someone is seriously injured.

She added: “Apart from being shook up my mum is okay but there is extensive damage to her car and property.

“This has happened on several occasions and honestly it’s only a matter of time before a car ends up in her house.

“Luckily the driver walked away on this occasion.”
