She said: “I heard a loud bang.

“I thought it was an earthquake or a shooting or something.

“I looked outside and all I could see was glass everywhere and the car was inside the office.”

The vehicle had to be removed from the rubble of the damaged building.

Police have said they think the female driver was trying to park their car at the time but ended up crashing into the centre.
