This is the scene of devastation this morning for a Sheffield family whose house has been smashed by a car which skidded down the snowy hill opposite.

The family were in the house on Argyle Road, Meersbrook, at about 8.20am when a car coming down Bishopscourt Road, a hill opposite the house, was said to lose control in the snow and career into its front room.

Mum Salmah, 23, said: “I was getting my daughter ready for school, and I was sat here when all of a sudden I heard a very, very loud noise.

“It felt as if the whole house could come down.

“Even after the crash it was still shaking.

“I thought in the back of my mind it must be a car crashing into the house but as soon as I got outside I just started screaming.”
