A drink-driver has been banned from the roads for four years after his BMW demolished the front of a Sunderland home in a crash.
Reginald Conlin was almost three times the legal limit when his car ploughed into the the cottage in Forster Street, Roker, early on August 27.
Police, fire crews and ambulances were called to the scene at just after 6am, after 31-year-old Conlin’s 63-reg BMW crashed through the brick wall and into the living room.
Miraculously, nobody was injured in the smash, which also involved a Renault Clio.
Householder Edmond Hammond had been brushing his teeth when the car struck his home.
He had heard a noise a few moments earlier which he thought was someone next door.
