The above picture was taken on my mobile phone. The shop – a retailer of ski and skateboarding stuff – is next door to my office.
On Monday afternoon a loud crash brought us all onto the street, there to bear witness to a quite surreal scene. A poor old dear, perhaps in her 80s, was sitting in the above car, engine still revving, looking quite bemused.
Quite how she managed to attain both the required speed and the perfect angle to reverse up onto the pavement and through the shop front is a mystery not even the BBC can resolve.
By some miracle, nobody was hurt, and even the little Scottie dog that normally sleeps in the window is still with us.
The end of one old lady’s driving career, I suspect.
