A car smashed into a fence and wall in a early morning crash.

At around 12.30am today police were called to Coopers Hill in Ongar.

There they found a blue Mercedes crash into the wall of a house.

Two people had climbed out of the vehicle and were given first aid by police officers before being handed over to the ambulance service.

Their injuries are not thought to be serious.

A police spokesperson said: "An investigation is ongoing into the circumstances but it is believed a blue Mercedes was involved in a collision with the wall of a property and a red Nissan parked at a second property, which subsequently collided with a wall."
