Traffic officers have shut Sandpit Lane to recover a vehicle which didn’t stop at the end of Lemsford Road.

The car crashed into scaffolding on a house that was being renovated.

Police were called shortly before midnight, following reports that a Range Rover had left the road and crashed into a garden. Damage was subsequently caused to another vehicle and a house.

The driver of the vehicle was taken to hospital to be assessed but was uninjured.

Road closures have been put in place by highways while the damage to the property is assessed and the vehicle is recovered.

A 49-year-old woman was arrested on suspicion of driving above the prescribed alcohol limit. She was later released with no further action.
