A spokesman for the fire service said the driver of the lorry was not trapped but was taken to hospital.

Kevin Huck, who rents the property, said it was lucky that nobody was in the property when it happened.

Mr Huck, who lives in the property with his partner Sue, said: “It was really lucky it did not happen at 3am as it has crashed into our bedroom.

“I was also going to work from home today but I decided not to.”

Mr Huck said he had been told that the driver had a “medical episode” before the crash.
