POLICE closed part of a Portsmouth road after a car crashed into a garden wall.

Officers were called to Cromwell Road, in Eastney, after a Ford Mondeo smashed into the wall and damaged the bay window of a house on Saturday afternoon.

No-one was inside at the time.

Two people inside the car at the time suffered minor injuries.

Virgin Media was called as a junction box was also damaged. No arrests were made. Speaking shortly after the incident, Chris Coole, who works behind the bar at the nearby Eastney Tavern, said: ‘It’s a hot topic right now.

‘Someone has crashed into the wall of a house so police have cordoned off the road just passed Worsley Street.’
