"The two occupants are thankfully going home to their families uninjured tonight," the officers wrote after the crash in Linton, Cambridgeshire on Friday.

"Driver only passed his test 5 weeks ago. Not all rural roads have been gritted so please drive to the conditions."

The rusty railings came within inches of the driver's head height, while shards of glass were shattered and scattered in the front interior of the vehicle.
