A GARDEN wall and fence were destroyed after this car ploughed into the garden of a home in Somerset.

Police say the incident in Weston-super-Mare yesterday evening (Sunday) posed a "risk to the family" living there.

The driver of the car suffered only "minor injuries", but was arrested on suspicion of drink driving.

An Avon and Somerset Police spokesman said: "The driver escaped with minor injuries.

"However the garden wall and fence to this property was not so lucky, and the risk to the family in this address was very real.

"The driver was arrested for a positive breath test."
