The driver, a 20-year-old woman, received only minor injuries.

Police say the Mini had been involved in a two car collision "which resulted in one vehicle hitting the house."

Extensive damage has been caused to the luxury home at Harolds Bank, Gorefield, near Wisbech.

"The vehicle was recovered and structural engineers were called to assess the building," said a police spokesman.
