A MOTORIST fled after the car he was driving ploughed through a garden wall in Bulwell.

Now police are on the hunt for the driver, who crashed the Citroen Saxo on Dunholme Crescent at 5.50 am on Sunday June 5.

Part of the wall was demolished and bricks smashed into the side of the house. Several plant pots were also destroyed.

The police were called to the scene and the car was soon removed. Boarding has been put up to make the rest of the wall safe.

Householder Ruby Brown says she was shocked to discover the car in her garden.

She says the vehicle could have ended up in her kitchen had it been travelling faster.

Officers investigating the crash say they cannot confirm or deny whether the car was stolen.

Anyone who witnessed the smash or has any information is asked to ring the police on 0300 3009999.
