A CAR crashed into a wall and a chip shop caught fire - all within the space of an hour in Shipston.
Police were called to the High Street just after 5pm yesterday after the incident involving a blue Ford Fusion, meanwhile just around the corner about 40 minutes later, four fire crews were called to a blaze at the Shipston Fish Bar, Church Street.
When they arrived the fire, which is thought to have started in the fryer area, had already been put out.
Regarding the car crash, a Warwickshire Police spokesman said it was believed the car jumped forward when it was started in gear. There was some damage to the car’s radiator. A 71-year-old male driver was assessed by a first responder but didnt require treatment.
