Fortunately there were no injuries, with both the occupants of the vehicles and the homeowner, who was in a back bedroom at the moment of the dramatic smash, walking away unhurt.

When fire crews arrived the Nissan was at the side of the road with a scrape while the Polo's front end was badly smashed.

The full extent of the damage to the house is not yet known.

The fire service remained at the scene for around half an hour before leaving the area in the hands of the police.
