Emergency services help clear up after BMW smashes into beauty salon
This was the scene after police and firefighters were called when a BMW crashed into the front of a hair and beauty salon.
Durham Constabulary called in help from Peterlee Red Watch following the collision, which happened in Seaside Lane, Easington Colliery.
The County Durham and Darlington Fire and Rescue Service crew ensured the vehicle, which brought down the shutters of the business, was safe.
Inquiries into the incident, which happened at 12.27pm yesterday, Sunday, May 30, and led to no injuries, are now underway.
Glam Hair and Beauty, which operates from the shop, shared messages on its Facebook page following the crash and say its team are preparing to welcome back customers from Wednesday, June 2, even though the front entrance will be out of bounds.
It said the incident was the second time the business, which moved into the shop last summer, has been crashed into and was waiting to find out what repairs were needed.
Bosses added it was lucky no one was hurt and the salon had been closed at the time of the crash.
The page said: “Absolutely heartbroken after being closed almost a full year without steady income, back to work and now this has happened.
“All of the Glamteam are devastated but will come out of this bigger, better and stronger.”
