A car careered out of control and crashed through the wall of a family home in Strumpshaw.

As villagers walking their dogs stopped to survey the scene this morning the Audi was still embedded in the wall of the barn conversion in Norwich Road, Strumpshaw.

The family, a couple and their two children, had been awoken by the collision at about 2am.

Fire crews from nearby Acle and Carrow in Norwich were called out to assess the damage and make the scene safe.

The family, who were able to stay in one part of their house, declined to talk about their experiences this morning, Police confirmed they had arrested one man on suspicion of drink-driving.

A spokesman for the East Anglian Ambulance Service confirmed that a crew had checked over a teenage boy at the scene. He had minor injuries and shock but did not need to go to hospital.
