A pet shop owner in Penzance has been left cleaning up after a car rolled into the store window last night.

The vehicle hit Pet's Boutique on Market Jew Street yesterday evening, after what is initially blamed on handbrake failure.

The accident caused damage to the front of the store, breaking the window.

Lee Palmer said on Twitter last night: "We saw the aftermath on the way to the station, no one seemed to be hurt.

"We couldn't quite work out how they managed to hit the shop at that angle."
