A car crashed into a house in a north-east village early today forcing residents to flee.
The car smashed into the property in Main Street, Longside, at about 1am after bumping into other vehicles as it made its way down the street.
It left a trail of destruction, including broken tiles, crooked railings and scratched cars before crashing into the front of a bungalow.
It appears to have left the corner on a bend and come to a rest on its side on a slope between the road and the path to the front door.
The residents were evacuated and picked up by a relative.
Nobody was injured, but the front of the property has been extensively damaged.
Craig Reekie’s mother and sister live next door, and was woken by worrying messages describing a “large bang”.
He said: “Mum had text me at around 1am saying she had been woken up by a large bang, I was quite worried.
“Her house had been fitted with metal railings by the landlord as just before she moved in a couple of years ago someone had crashed through their porch.”
Police cordoned off the road and remained at the site until the car was recovered.
A spokeswoman said: “We were called around 12.44am on Wednesday, March 10 to a report of a car leaving the road in Main Street, Longside, near Peterhead, and colliding with a property.
“The road was closed for a short time mid-morning for the vehicle to be recovered.”
