The Mayor of St Edmundsbury, who accidentally drove his car into his local supermarket just days after taking office, has said he's given up driving.

Councillor Terry Buckle, who's 73, lost control of his Vauxhall Vectra while trying to park at the Tesco store in Bury St Edmunds last week. Mayor Buckle said the accident, his first in 56 years of driving, frightened him so much he's vowed not to get behind the wheel again.
