Four people were hospitalised when a car smashed through the side of a house and burst into flames.

A family was at home when the white VW Golf crashed into the property in York in the early hours of Sunday.

The vehicle can be seen in dramatic pictures wedged inside the house on Morehall Close after punching a hole in one of the walls.

His wife and young child escaped unharmed as flames sprang out of the car, according to the fire service, the Press Association reported.

There were three people in the Golf, who were all taken to hospital with head injuries, the service said.

Three fire crews were sent to tackle the blaze which had spread to the house.

Police have appealed for information.
