A car caused “considerable damage” when it crashed into a house.

The blue Vauxhall Astra hit the two-storey semi-detached house on Westend Avenue, Coppull, near Chorley, at around 9.55am today.

A police spokesman said the vehicle went through a fence and into the house.

The male driver suffered minor injuries and was checked over by a paramedic at the scene, but declined to go to hospital.

No-one else is thought to have been injured in the incident.

Firefighters attended to make the building safe.

A fire service representative said: “It caused considerable damage and de-stabilised the building.

“We responded as an urban search and rescue team and spent a few hours shoring up the building.”
