A WOMAN with learning difficulties has had to be moved from her home after a car crashed through the wall of her house.
The 51-year-old was in a different room when a Volvo crashed into the lounge of her home in Hartford Road, Huntingdon, in the early hours of Saturday morning.
The damage done to the building, owned by the Papworth Trust Centre, has forced the woman to move out until it can be repaired.
Cambridgeshire police confirmed that a 21-year-old woman had been arrested on suspicion of taking the car without consent and drink-driving. She has been bailed to appear in court on May 10.
