Things just keep going from bad to worse for the prime minister. As Partygate and a Commons committee investigation into whether he misled parliament hangs over his leadership, it’s been revealed that a car smashed into a £1.3 million property he owns in Camberwell, south London.

It was around 1am on Monday when the black Vauxhall Astra crashed into the front garden, causing a sound described as “thunder” by neighbours.

The vehicle, which had caused damage to hedges, a tree and a small pillar at the front of the house, was eventually towed away at 5pm the same day.

A Metropolitan Police spokesperson said: “Officers attended and found a car that had struck the exterior of a property causing minor damage.

“The driver of the car sustained a minor injury and was assessed by paramedics, but did not require hospital treatment.

“No offences were identified.”

And such is the world of Twitter that users didn’t hold back when it came to ridiculing the incident:
