Dominic Covell, who lives on a nearby street, said he had heard the crash happen.

He said: “I heard the screeching as the brakes went on and I heard the bang.

“I dialled 999 and went to see if there was anyone hurt.”

He said it appeared there had been three people in the car, which had mounted the kerb and then gone into the doors of two properties before hitting a lamppost and flipping over.
