Shoppers were left startled after a grey car smashed into part of the Tesco petrol station at Oldings Corner in Hatfield yesterday evening.

Mackenzie Rawson told the Welwyn Hatfield Times: “I didn’t see it happen but we had got there just after.

“You could see the car had reversed straight into the pump lines.

“You can see where they had actually pulled parts out of the ground.
