A 61-year-old woman is in a "critical but stable" condition, after she was hit by a car which smashed into a shop.

The pedestrian from the Torbay area was taken to Torbay Hospital before being transferred to Derriford Hospital.

The crash happened at Hyde Road, Paignton on Saturday afternoon, Devon and Cornwall Police said.

Residents on Dendy Road were evacuated due to a burst gas pipe which was hit in the crash. Police said the pipe was fixed just before 17:00 BST.

The male driver is being treated at Torbay hospital. Police said they were continuing their investigations.
