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.
