Date published: 18 March 2013
A COUPLE described their shock as a van ploughed through their lounge window on Saturday evening.
Sharon and Paul Lomas were watching television in their Ashton Road home when the van crashed into their home
Sharon, who works at B&Q, said a vehicled smashed through the window and brought down the front of the house.
“We just jumped and ran. It came smashing in. I’ve never seen anything like it,” she said.
The garden and a wall were destroyed and even recycling bins ended up in the lounge, though neither Sharon nor Paul were hurt.
Outside they found the driver had fled. Two men were seen running away.
The property was insured and the couple were today awaiting the arrival of assessors to determine the extent of the damage and the cost of repairs.
One member of the family who had a lucky escape was Ozzy, their pet Jack Russell. He would normally have been in his basket under the lounge window, but instead was up on the couch with his owners.
