The Citroen C3 left the road and ended up embedded in the front wall.

The driver, a 30-year-old woman from Boston, was shaken but uninjured, said police.

None of the occupants of the house were hurt, added the police spokesman.

Coun Raymond Singleton-McGuire, who lets the 
property, said the occupants had only just left the 
property to go to work that morning.

He said: “They were just going to work, looked back and saw a car come off the road and into the front of their house, so they came back.”

He said he was on the scene as soon as he was called and had hoped to get the building repaired within a few hours - having already organised workmen to carry out the work.

He said that over the past 20 years this was the first time a vehicle had gone into his property.

Witnesses are asked to call 101, quoting incident number 19, of March 16.
