Josephine Bilton woke to a loud bang at around 7am followed by a repetitive thumping sound.

When Mrs Bilton looked out of her window she found a silver Renault had crashed into her front garden and a man was knocking on the door and saying he was sorry.

However, as Mrs Bilton answered the door the man fled the scene.

Mrs Bilton said: 'I was quite shaken really and I think he was too. He panicked.'

Police have attended the scene and the council are towing the vehicle.
