Car crashes through wall of house

A family in Resolven near Neath were woken in the early hours of the morning after a car crashed through the side of their house and into their kitchen

Police have appealed for witnesses to an incident in which a car crashed through the wall of a home ending up in the kitchen.

Homeowners Michael and Julie Miller are waiting to learn if their property in Resolven, Neath, needs to be demolished due to structural damage.

The pair were woken just before 0430 BST on Wednesday by what they feared was a gas explosion.

Police have said a 24-year-old man has been arrested.

The road was closed while fire service crews from Glynneath and Neath made the area safe.

Council structural engineers are assessing the property in Company Street to see if it needs to be demolished.

Anyone with information is asked to contact PC 2289 Meller at South Wales Police's Roads Policing Unit, in Cockett, Swansea, on 101 or the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
