Kelly Broomhall, who lives on Northway with her son and partner, said her mother-in-law was on her doorstep just five minutes before a car came crashing into the driveway of her family home, wrecking four cars belonging to Kelly, her partner Wayne, her son and her mother-in-law Sharon, who lives next door.

West Midlands Police are investigating after the stolen car was abandoned and three people were seen to flee in another vehicle.

Sharon Martin was visiting Kelly after returning back from hospital at around 7.20pm on Friday. Just moments after the pair went inside, disaster struck.

Kelly, who works as a planning engineer, said she heard a "massive bang" and rushed to the door to discover what she said could only be described as "absolute carnage".

The 43-year-old said: "My mother-in-law and I were sat in the conservatory and Wayne was sitting in the front lounge near the window, which looks onto the driveway.

"We suddenly heard strange grinding noises and then a massive bang. The whole house shook, I thought a lorry was going to come through the window. The sound was so bizarre I can't even describe it. Sharon thought it was a gas explosion."
