A lorry driver who smashed into a listed house in a narrow village street in a suspected 'sat nav blunder' has been arrested.
The lorry driver crashed into a brick wall damaging the historic home in the quaint village of Woolpit, near Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk.
Police say the trailer truck became stuck on top of the bricks after the bizarre collision at 9.20am this morning.
There were no injuries and the ambulance service was not contacted.
A structural engineer will have to go to the scene to assess the damage before the lorry can be removed.
Police closed a section of the road as the 23-year-old driver was taken to Bury St Edmunds police station to be quizzed on suspicion of careless driving.
"A lorry has crashed in to a brick wall which was connected to the house.“The brick wall has fallen back in to the house, which was badly damaged.”
