Car smashes into house

TWO men have been arrested after a car failed to stop for police and smashed into the front of a house.

Police signalled for the driver of a Ford Escort to pull over in Billingham but they carried on driving.

Around 30 seconds later it smashed into the bay window of a house in Tibbersley Avenue.

Luckily nobody was in the house at the time and only the window of the property was damaged.

Two men were arrested on suspicion of theft of the vehicle.

The incident happened at around 12.40am on Friday.
