They have now been left without a car over the Christmas period after the incident wrote off both their vehicles.

“It all happened at around 9.20pm last night,” said Stella.

“We had just finished putting the lights up on our tree and were sitting watching the television when we heard a really loud bang.

“The driver of a Range Rover had been driving down the road, and not realised there was a bend.

“He hit both our cars and our next door neighbour’s car.”

Both David’s Fiat Stilo and Stella’s Volkswagen Polo have been written off, along with their neighbour’s brand new Volkswagen.

Stellas children Sophie, 12, and Millie, 9, were woken up by the crash.

She added: “The children are really upset - they get very attached to the cars! We call my car ‘Bob’.

“Thankfully no-one was hurt but the driver was very shocked.

“The police came and said he obviously didn’t realise the road curved.

“It’s rather impressive that he managed to hit both our cars.

“Accidents happen.

“But it looks like I will be walking the children to school for the next few weeks.”
