A car has crashed into Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s £1.3 million house in London.

Police were called to Mr Johnson’s property in south London at 1:19am this morning after a Vauxhall Astra crashed into the front wall of the house.

The car damaged a hedge and a tree, while the driver suffered a minor injury.

A Metropolitan Police spokesman said: “Officers attended and found a car that had struck the exterior of a property causing minor damage.

"The driver of the car sustained a minor injury and was assessed by paramedics but did not require hospital treatment. No offences were identified.”

The incident comes just days after the PM 's Conservative Party suffered a "disappointing" set of local election results.

Speaking to broadcasters during a visit to a school in his constituency, the Prime Minister admitted that the UK had “failed to invest sufficiency” in domestic energy security for “decades”.

He said: “We let our nuclear energy completely collapse. We haven’t done enough to put in renewables in the way that we can, put in more wind at the scale and the pace that we can. So that is where we want to go.

“Now, I’m not going to pretend to you… that… there isn’t going to be a difficult period as we come through the aftershocks of Covid. There is.

“But what I’m going to tell you is that this Government is absolutely determined to keep going with every ounce of compassion and ingenuity that we have, get people through the economic aftershocks, help people with the costs, but make sure that we address the supply side issues, particularly energy, in order for the economy to keep growing.”
