A car crashed into a wall on a busy residential street in Newport this morning (Monday) as parents were dropping their children off at school.

The incident took place on Whitesmith Road, near Hunnyhill Primary School, shortly before 08:45.

Thankfully, no one was injured in the crash, which saw a Ford C-Max mount the pavement and collide head-on into a wall. The Ford narrowly missed hitting a parked VW by inches.

Can’t believe Garry Fry has had another crash. How long until they take his license away?
