Nobody was seriously injured in the incident which happened at The Olde Jack Inn in Calverhall, near Market Drayton, at about 2.45pm on Saturday.

Shropshire Fire and Rescue Service said crews removed the car and made the scene safe.

Some windows, a door and a supporting beam were damaged but the pub was able to reopen once the debris was cleared up.

Station manager Simon Roberts, who is based at the fire services headquarters in Shrewsbury, said: "There were two people in the vehicle at the time.

"They were checked over and did not need to go to hospital.

"The damage was caused to the entrance foyer. There was no structural damage to the pub which we could tell.

"There were people inside the pub, not in the foyer, and no-one was injured.

"We moved the car to a place of safety and cordoned off the areas that had damage to them."

Two fire appliances, including the rescue tender, were sent to the scene from Prees, Wellington and Whitchurch along with an operations officer.
