A local charity shop has been forced to close its doors today (19/4) after a car 'drove into' the front of the shop.
HULA Animal Rescue, located in Woburn Sands, has closed its High Street charity store following an accident that took place earlier today.
It has been reported that a car collided into the front of the store. Luckily nobody was harmed during the incident.
The store, which provides much-needed funds for HULA's animal rehoming centre, only reopened for non-essential retail a week ago.
But it has now boarded its doors up to ensure that the necessary repairs can be made.
A spokesperson for HULA said: "We regret to inform you that after just one week of being open again our HULA shop in Woburn Sands is now closed. This is due to an accident that involved a car driving into the shop front. Luckily the driver, shop staff and bystanders were not hurt in the collision, however we do now have to close the shop to make necessary repairs to ensure it is safe.
"We were very much enjoying seeing you all again and are saddened by this accident, but glad that no one was injured. We do hope to be reopening as soon as is possible."
