A BRAND new car has ploughed through the window of a shop in a Cheshire town centre.

A shocked man in the street heard an ‘almighty bang’ as the Skoda crashed through the glass into Midas Jewellers in Knutsford.

The car has ended up right in the middle of the showroom.

Amazingly, none of the glass cabinets full of necklaces, rings and watches appear to have been broken.

Robert Stott, 59, of Knutsford, said: “I heard an almighty bang.

“It sounded like glass.

“I walked down the road and thought: ‘Oh my Lord, what’s happened’.

“I couldn’t believe it.”
