A CAR crashed into a family home and demolished a wall during the early hours of the morning.

At 3am this morning, a blue Ford Focus crashed its way through Craig Collings' front garden and into the front of his house in Chandler's Ford.

The car has damaged the front wall and propelled lumps of brick into the house just inches away from his son's bedroom window.

The house, on Leigh Road, has suffered huge damage to the front wall and has been labelled unsafe for Craig and his family by officials.

The father-of-four said: "It was a shock at first, it wasn't until I got to my mum's house and had a coffee and thought did that just happen?

"Its scary because my son sleeps in the room downstairs and it was so close to him."

The man who was driving the car was taken away in an ambulance.
