Audi driver mocked after smashing through Sainsbury’s wall into pet food aisle

A motorist looks to have mistaken a supermarket for a drive through after smashing through a wall.

Police were called to a Sainsbury's store in Derby on Saturday evening where a red car caused carnage by smashing down multiple shelves in the pet food section.

Fortunately no injuries came from what has been described by Derbyshire Police as a "poor standard of driving" outside the Osmaston Park Sainsbury's.

Although it is likely the driver left feeling the same shade as their Audi A3 given the destruction they appear to have accidentally caused.

A clean up on the pet food aisle will need to be matched with a rebuilding of the shop wall which CCTV caught being dramatically ploughed down, DerbyshireLive reports.

A photo shows the driver knocked down not one but two bollards on their way through the shop window.

In a tweet, Derbyshire Roads Policing Unit said it was investigating the incident, but early indications suggested poor driving on the part of the owner.

It said: "Sainsbury's, Osmaston Park Road, Derby. In-store cleaner required in the pet food aisle please.

"Audi drives in to shop window. Investigation ongoing but initial CCTV enquiries shows poor standard of driving in car park. No injuries but lots and lots of damage."

A photo from outside the shop shows shards of shattered glass scattered beside the empty window which appears to have been blacked out.

The motorist seems to have narrowly dodged a cycle bar that could well have blocked their path into the store.

A DerbyshireLive reader found the funny side to the incident and commented: "Gives a whole new meaning to 'window shopping'!"

Someone replied to the police's tweet asking: "How on earth do you crash into a shop!!"

Another spent time drafting up a catchy new Christmas song to the tune of Driving Home For Christmas.

They said: "I'm driving home for Christmas Oh, I can't wait to see good old sainsbury's I'm driving home for Christmas, yea Well I'm moving down the pet food aisle And it's been so long But I will be there I sing this song To pass the time away Driving in my car Driving in to sainsbury's."

A third joked: "Unexpected item in bagging area !"
