The vehicle hit an extension on a semi-detached house in Wordsworth Road, Hereford, at about 02:30 GMT.

No-one was hurt. The fire service ordered an evacuation of the house and two neighbouring properties because of a possible gas leak.

Gas repairs were carried out and residents were allowed back into their homes by 07:00 GMT.
