THE "nightmare" moment a car crashed into a little bungalow in Droitwich has been described by its homeowners.

Paul and Karen Richards had an evening they may never forget after their home "shook" when a car crashed into their newly decorated living room on Thatchers Place.

It comes after a teenager was taken to Worcestershire Royal Hospital following the incident.

Mr Richard said: "There was this terrific bang, and I said, hang on a minute, what's going on?

"I thought it may have been my aerial that hit the roof and slid down, but then I also thought it can't be that as I know, I've secured it.

"We had only just decorated it."

He said it took them 12 months to decorate their living room, which now has a big hole.

It is estimated that thousands of pounds worth of damage was created.

"I had to tighten the door and wedge it with a piece of wood so we could both get an hour's sleep."

"The whole building shook. The damage is not just where the car hit but the entire house.

The two also are not allowed to enter the living room due to structural damage.

Platform Housing has been to the scene and is working on making the house safe.
