A family from Devon had a shock on Tuesday when a supermarket lorry crashed into their house.

The lorry skidded in icy conditions hitting the side of the building.

They raced downstairs to find the lorry lying across the road outside. The driver was unhurt and so was everyone inside the house at the time.

Family members told journalists how he rushed to check if the driver was alright before warning other motorists of the crash.
