Car crash causes garden centre £50,000 damage
By Matthew Appleby Wednesday, 05 June 2013
Norfolk business Aylsham Garden Centre has re-opened after a car ploughed through the building, causing around £50,000 damage.
No-one was in the garden centre at the time of the crash so no one was injured, although the car damaged stock and another car.
The driver of the car has been charged with drink driving and will appear before Norwich magistrates on June 20.
The crash also cut off the garden centre's telephone lines, meaning customers were unable to pay using credit and debit cards.
