A mechanic has mistakenly crashed a Mercedes through the wall of a Derbyshire garage.
Dramatic pictures show the bonnet encased in the remnants of the brick wall at Cherry's MOT Centre in Chesterfield.
It's believed the mechanic pushed the accelerator pedal by accident, sending the silver car flying into the side of the building.
Alan Cherry, who owns the centre, told ITV Central he was busy running his business, and felt angry about exaggerated reports of the accident.
"It was a pure accident. The mechanic was just doing his job.
"The press have blown it out of all proportion. I've read the car was worth £30,000 - it wasn't. It was 11 years old and it was worth £4,000 at most. It would've struggled to pass its MOT."
