One of the staff said they were at the counter, when the car smashed through the whole front of the shop.

“We sort of got stuck behind the car and the bench,” xx said.

“I’m bruised, probably a broken rib as well but I’ll be okay.”

The shocked passenger inside the car says it just took off, and put the accident down to a mechanical fault.

The owners hope they will be able to reopen the store next week.
