The pavement of Southgate Lane in Norwich is currently covered in bricks and stone, with the rear of a van poking through a hole in the wall.

It remains to be seen how the hole itself was made, however, with the van itself appearing to have limited damage.

The incident has left a large hole, with small amounts of rubble also resting on the rear bumper of the Citroen van.

A spokesman for Norfolk Constabulary was unable to trace any record of the incident being reported to the police.
