A FAMILY had a lucky escape when a B&Q lorry crashed into their home in the early hours. David and Hannah Hill were woken at 3.30am by a 'huge thud'. The impact left a gaping hole in their daughters' bedroom, and council inspectors said the £300,000 house was too dangerous to live in. Mr Hill, 31, of Harlow, Essex, said it was fortunate the girls were staying elsewhere at the time. He added: 'We're essentially homeless, so we will stay with family.' A spokeswoman for the DIY chain said: 'B&Q and Wincanton, our fleet operators, are co-operating fully with the police to understand what happened.' She added the firm sent its 'heartfelt apologies' to the family involved, and that it would 'support them however we can'.
The driver was unhurt in the crash.
