An Opel Astra driver has decided to turn Sue and Len Green’s home on Pump Lane into a drive-through:

Emergency services descended on the quiet village of Wyaston after a woman crashed her car through Sue and Len Green’s front door.


The car crashed more than 18in inside the front door and a structural engineer from Derbyshire Dales District Council was called out to ensure the property was made safe during the rescue operation, due to a large crack below a bedroom window.


Mrs Green said:[…] “The hall is a bit like Beirut and the wall has gone, while the ceiling is being held up by a piece of wood.”

The classic Beirut equates to destruction phrase. That’s why I’m here; to show Sue Green the right way portray her thoughts without bad-mouthing our capital.
