Woman dies after car smashes into side of house

A woman has died after a car crashed into a house.

The vehicle smashed into a property in Clevedon, Somerset, around 8.30pm on Wednesday.

Avon and Somerset Police said significant damage was caused to the home and "tragically a woman inside has died".

The woman's family have been informed of her death, the force added.

Residents of neighbouring houses on Yeolands Drive were evacuated for the night due to fears a gas pipe was damaged in the crash.
