A mother and baby have had a lucky escape after a van crashed through a hedge into their front garden earlier today.

Jill Thomas and her son Seth from Mapperley in Nottingham had to leap out of the way when the van collided with a car and came hurtling towards them at around 9am.

No-one was injured, but the near miss on Coronation Road has angered residents who say motorists use the street as a rat-run.
