A car has crashed into a house in Derbyshire, leaving the property badly damaged.

Police officers, fire crews and a structural engineer were called to the property in Codnor Gate, Codnor, at about 04:00 GMT.

The residents in the house were advised to keep away from the front rooms and to stay at the back of the building.

The saloon car has since been removed from the property. It is not yet clear if anyone was injured.

Engineers said they had seen "large cracks" appearing in the walls of the house.
