An ambulance, a rapid response vehicle, and police were called after the crash, and the women were treated for cuts and bruises.

Norman Bean, who lives on St Thomas' Road and called for the ambulance, said: "I heard a huge bang and I looked up quickly.

"The car was flying through the air and landed side-on. Part of the engine came off as well."

"I called an ambulance and police to come and block the road off, because there's oil all over the road."

"The tree and the lamp post have been taken straight out."
