Woman reverses into neighbouring house

AN ELDERLY woman has caused "structural damage" to her neighbour's home after reversing into it, a fire service spokesman said.

The woman, who is in her eighties, reversed her Rover MG into the living room of the house in Lindsey Close in Bessacarr.

No-one was in the property at the time but the house was badly damaged and a structural engineer was called, the spokesman said.

The woman was helped from her car by paramedics and taken to Doncaster Royal Infirmary.

The neighbours, a couple in their eighties, returned home while emergency services were at the scene yesterday.
