A VAN had to be towed from the side of a house in Belbroughton after crashing into the porch. 

No injuries were reported following the incident, which took place on High Street at around 8.40am this morning (August 23).

A West Mercia Police spokesman said: "We were called at 8.42am to reports of a white Volkswagen van colliding with the side of a property on Belbroughton High Street.

"There are no reports of any injuries and the damage to the property appears to be contained to a porch, not thought to be structural."

The road was briefly blocked which caused some traffic congestion, but it has since re-opened.

Ambulance crews also attended alongside three Hereford and Worcester Fire and Rescue Service crews from Kidderminster and Droitwich. 

A fire spokesman addded: "No one was trapped and firefighters worked to ensure that the vehicle was made safe."
