Fire crews from Northfield and Kings Norton were called out to the incident on Newlyn Road and found one car on top of another, with one of the cars also backing into the house.

The incident on Friday also caused extensive brick work damage to the house, as well as the internal and external bay windows, although it was confirmed the house was not at risk of collapse.

A woman driving one of the cars was assessed at the scene and released with no further injuries, while the cars were removed from the scene by winches.

A spokesperson for West Midlands Fire Service said: "We were called to the scene at Newlyn Road at 9.50pm, with one crew each from Northfield and Kings Norton plus a fire officer in attendance.

"The incident has involved one car in collision with the car on the drive and has caused extensive damage to brickwork and bay windows externally and internally of the property.

"Crews on the scene spoke to the tech rescue advisor in attendance, who confirmed that it was not in immediate danger of collapse.

"The home owner stated he had housing insurance and it's been advised that he does not go into the property until professional builders have carried out the necessary repairs.

"The lady driving the car has been assessed by ambulance and will not be going to hospital.

"The cars were removed from the property by winches."
