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.

"I have been here for 20 years now and I have seen some accidents, but nothing like this. That shop has been shut for a few weeks now."
