A cafe in Blackstock Road was damaged in a fire after a car crashed into it late on Thursday night.

Fire crews were called to the scene at 12.30am on Friday. The blaze damaged part of the front of Cinnamon Village but no one was injured.

One neighbour told the Gazette: “I woke up and heard police cars and then a big crush. I saw a car destroyed and on fire but I couldn’t see if someone was still inside.”

No injuries were reported and the fire was under control by 1.20am.
