Businesses were "lucky" not to be damaged after a Mercedes car careered into a flower bed in Crouch End, demolishing a wall. 

Police were called just after 5.20am on Sunday (July 17)  to reports that a car had collided with a wall at the junction of Park Road and Middle Lane. 

Officers attended and assisted with arranging for the car to be recovered, Scotland Yard said.

No injuries were reported and enquiries are ongoing, they added.

Jay Sherman, a butcher at Freemans Butchers, said: "I came in at about 10am and it was there on the wall. 

"A police van turned up first then left, then a recovery truck came and realised they might not be able to remove the car without breaking the wall, so they got another one to come out with a crane."

Billy Phan, manager of Vietnamese restaurant Khoia, adjacent to the wall, said: "If the flower bed wasn't there, the car would have smashed into our door.
