Lyndsey, 20, told The Lincolnite: “I was sat watching TV near the front room window and I was about to turn the TV off when I heard a massive bang.

“I didn’t even hear the car coming, just when it drove forward into the house.

“It was lucky my boys were not in the room, I was terrified.

“I still can’t get over it now. It keeps playing over in my head.

“It doesn’t look bad from outside, but on the inside you can tell it has been hit hard.

“I can’t sleep at night since it happened, every time I hear a car coming down the road I panic.”
