A car was left suspended over a garden wall in Torquay after it crashed through a car port.

An 88-year-old woman drove the car over the wall and into the hedge at her home in Bishops Rise just off Ilsham Valley on Wednesday afternoon (May 4).

She was rescued by Devon and Somerset Fire and Rescue Service, who pulled her out of the car and into safety. Paramedics have since left the scene.
