A Jaguar XJ collided with a parked Mini and damaged four other cars, as well as garden walls.

The driver of the Jaguar was taken to hospital with non life-threatening injuries and no other people were injured.

Officers are now appealing to anyone who witnessed the incident to get in touch.

Constable Kurt Timpson from the Roads Policing Unit said:

The incident happened outside a primary school at a time when parents will have been taking young children into school, and someone who was in the area at the time may have valuable information.

“I would appeal for anyone who actually saw the collision or who saw the Jaguar in the minutes leading up to it to come forward and speak to us. In addition if anyone has any home CCTV or dash-cam we would be interested to view that as well.”
