A Fiat 500 crashed into Sofa UK on Fitzwilliam Road after skidding off the road.


The vehicle has been recovered and the driver is reported to be safe and well.

“I would remind everyone to make sure they are safe while driving.”

PCSO Millward said the shop was not open at the time of the accident.
