In the images, you can see that the vehicle has almost fully gone through the wall – with only the rear end remaining on the outside.

The photos also show that there was extensive damage to the front of the car and that there was debris scattered across Hythe Library in the aftermath.

No-one was injured in the crash, Hampshire Fire and Rescue have said.
