A motorist did not curry any favour with an Indian eatery in Croydon when they crashed through the front this morning.

The collision in South End at around 12:30am caused significant damage to the Vael-n-Dine restaurant, and it is not yet known when it will be able to reopen to customers.

When emergency services arrived at the scene they found a dark blue BMW had collided with a parked van before smashing into the building.

There are no reports of any injuries and there have been no arrests.
