A WOMAN’S new home was wrecked when a car smashed into the living room — with the estate agent’s board still outside.
Amy-Leigh Scott, 28, moved into the property just weeks ago but was forced to leave again because of the smash.
She said: “It is unbelievable – a terrible mess. The car had gone through the front of our house.
“We were only a few minutes away and when we got there we could just see the flashing lights of the police and fire brigade.”
“Someone has been out and added supports but the whole front of the house is now boarded up.
Shopworker Amy-Leigh and her partner had just finished decorating when the crash happened in the early hours of Sunday morning.
The couple, of Saltney, North Wales, did not have time to get insured and are now living in emergency accommodation.
Amy added: “We’ve got some accommodation now through a neighbour who has been supporting and advising us.
“We’ve also managed to get in touch with Cheshire West and Chester Council – they are basically sorting us emergency accommodation.”
