Staff at a Wisbech hair salon say it’s business as usual despite a car crashing into their premises at the weekend.

Police have appealed for witnesses after a car, thought to be a black Vauxhall Corsa, hit the Clippers premises in Hill Street shortly after midnight on Sunday.

In a separate incident a car crashed into a house and other vehicles in March on Friday night.

Despite the damage caused by Sunday’s crash, Clippers was open for business as usual on Monday after the owner of the building returned from Preston to carry out emergency repairs.

Charlotte Hayes-Watts, who runs the salon with business partner Sophie Green, said the incident had been reported from the nearby Horsefair pub.

She said: “They saw a car screeching off and rang the police. The front of the shop has been pretty well smashed to bits.”

Police say the car drove off towards Union Street after the crash.

Mrs Hayes-Watts has echoed officers’ appeals for information about what happened.

She said: “There’s got to be a car somewhere with damage.”

People living in Norwood Road, March, lost their telephone lines after a car crashed on Friday night.

Police were called at 8.20pm after a silver Mercedes E55 hit a telegraph pole and landed in a garden.

It had also hit a gold Renault Megane, a black Ford Fiesta and a black Ford Focus, along with a boundary wall.

The driver ran off.

A 78-year-old resident said: “The council in its wisdom said last month that there was no history of speeding in Norwood Road. Maybe they should reassess that.”

Anyone with information is asked to contact Cambridgeshire Police on 101.
