A CAR crashed into a house in north Herefordshire last night, but the driver escaped serious injury.

Emergency services were called shortly after 10.30pm to Kington after a car collided with a house on Headbrook.

Crews from Hereford & Worcester Fire and Rescue Service made the house safe with a temporary support for the porch, and boarded up the smashed window.

A spokesperson for West Midlands Ambulance Service said one ambulance and one paramedic officer attended the scene, and the driver, a woman, was taken to hospital with injuries not believed to be serious.

The emergency services said there is still debris at the scene, so urge pedestrians to be careful.
