A car has smashed through the front of a former chip shop in a Derbyshire village.

An elderly couple are believed to have been in the Ford Kuga Titanium when it ploughed through bricks and glass on the building's frontage.

The former Seagull Fish Bar, in Burton Road, Overseal, was hit just after 3pm, reports the Burton Mail.

South Derbyshire District Council's building experts say there was "no fundamental structural damage" and that contractors will board up the shop after the car is safely removed.
