Kevin Gamblin, of Daves Family Butchers, saw what happened and said: ‘The woman was having problems parking, going backwards and forwards, before she floored it and mounted the pavement and smashed into the shop.

PC Rob Lewis, of Havant police, said: ‘Fortunately the person in the shop saw it coming and got out of the way. It could have been a very different outcome had he not seen the car.’ No customers were in the shop at the time of the incident.’
