The female driver suffered a serious injury to her arm and other minor injuries in the collision but no one inside the property was hurt.

Firefighters released the casualty from the vehicle by cutting off the roof of the car before South Central Ambulance Service took her to the John Radcliffe Hospital in Oxford.

Thames Valley Police is investigating the cause of the incident.

Banbury crew manager Sean Dyer said: “Following a number of road traffic collisions throughout Oxfordshire and the Thames Valley over the past couple of months, I would urge drivers to be cautious and drive according to the conditions.”
