Car left hanging from flats after midnight crash

A man's been arrested after hitting the front of a building in Barnet. The Ford Focus veered off the road and smashed through the front of the detached house in Capel Road, on a T-junction with Cranbrook Road.

No-one was hurt in the crash, which happened late last night, though some residents were trapped in their flats until this morning.

A 30-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of dangerous driving, drink driving, possession of cannabis, committing grievous bodily harm and assaulting a police officer.
