The car hit the front of the shop breaking through the window, and fortunately their was no-one injured.

A car crashed through the front window of a popular fish and chip shop in Upminster.

Police were called shortly after 1pm yesterday (Sunday, August 5) after a Jaguar car crashed through the front of Fishy Business II in Corbets Tey Road.

Officers said that there was no-one inside of the car and there were no reported injuries.

It is believed that the car had been parked close to the shop and for one reason or another rolled forward and crashed into the show window.

The driver of the car returned later, and helped officers with their enquiries.

A passer by told the Recorder: “We went past at about 2.20pm and a police women was in attendance looking over the car. I did not see any driver.

“There were scratches along the left hand side of the car. I am not sure if from this incident.

“It had hit the front of the shop breaking the window and had not travelled to far through. So possibly hit at slow speed.”
