A mother has spoken of her shock after a police car ploughed into her Ipswich house in the early hours of this morning.
Karen Stacey, of Downside Close, was woken up by a loud bang just after 5am today and when she looked out the window, discovered a police vehicle had smashed into her porch.
Police had been attending another incident in the street when the accident happened. The events surrounding the crash are still being investigated.
Miss Stacey, 35, said: “I was in bed and the next minute I heard a loud bang, like a bomb. I saw a police car had gone into the side of my house.
“I was in shock.”

The mum of three, who has lived in the housing association-owned property for seven years, said: “It’s lucky my children weren’t here at the time.
“I haven’t been able to see the full damage of it yet as they are still investigating it. I think the police were more annoyed about it than me.”
