No-one is believed to have been hurt.

Syed Miah, who was working at the Indian Style takeaway, two doors along from the scene, said the pizza shop had been shut for some time.

"All I heard was a bang," he said.

"I went running out and all I saw was the car in the shop. I just thought somebody must have injured themselves.
