A B&Q lorry has crashed into the side of a house on Canons Gate in Harlow, leaving a family without their home for Christmas.
It happened at about 3.20 this morning, 17 December.
David Hill , 31, and wife Hannah Hill, 28, were both asleep at the time. Luckily, they were not in the lounge or the upstairs bedroom, which is where the lorry smashed into. It's understood that the couple are grateful David’s two daughters weren’t visiting, as they would normally stay in the bedroom that was hit.
David and Hannah were supposed to be spending Christmas morning and Boxing day at home, but now this won’t be able to happen.
The lorry currently remains stuck in their property and Harlow Council says B&Q are sending out a recovery vehicle later today to remove the lorry.
B&Q have sent their apologies to the family.
