A car has crashed into the front garden of a property in Leiston.

The incident happened at 1.45am today (January 8) in Abbey Road.

Residents woke to a loud noise in the early hours of the morning and looked out of their windows to see a car in the front garden of a property.

Images show white bollards which were flattened and the car near to a tree.

Suffolk police later charged a man on suspicion of driving while under the influence of excess alcohol.
