A shopfront in Newbury Park was damaged when a car ploughed into it at speed after its driver lost control on the A12 last night (Thursday, May 31).
A Metropolitan Police spokesman confirmed officers were called to the junction of Ley Street and Eastern Avenue at 11.39pm to reports that a car had mounted the pavement.
Officers arrived to discover that the car had hit a shopfront and set off the store’s burglar alarm.
One man was treated at the scene for minor injuries, and the driver was cautioned at the scene for driving without due care and attention.
He was not arrested or charged.
