A car careered through a supermarket window leaving shelves and food strewn across the floor.

The red Audi hit the Sainsbury's store in Osmaston Park in Allenton, Derby, at about 22:00 GMT on Saturday.

Derbyshire Roads Policing Unit tweeted: "In-store cleaner required in the pet food aisle please."

It said an investigation was ongoing but initial CCTV inquiries showed a "poor standard of driving" in the car park. No-one was hurt in the crash.

The post added there was "lots and lots of damage".

No arrests have been made.

A Sainsbury's spokesperson said: "There was an incident at our Osmaston store last night involving a vehicle collision."

She added the store was near closing at the time of the crash but no-one was hurt.

The shop opened as planned on Sunday morning, she said.
