Residents of a house in Essex escaped uninjured after it was hit by a lorry.
Police were called just after 2pm where they found a lorry had collided with a house on the junction of Landermere Road and the B1033 at Thorpe-Le-Soken.
Neighbour Alex Nicolic said the lorry was en-route to a nearby construction site when it struck the house.
He said: “It was a big bang. It was a 42 tonne lorry.
“He was coming down the road to a building site. It couldn’t get there so it backed up and reversed into the house.
