A pensioner was injured after a car crashed through a fence and hit a shed which collapsed on top of her.

Firefighters, paramedics and police were called to Rosemary Avenue, Halfway, at 4.45pm on Wednesday.

It’s thought a car had been accidentally put into reverse before the accident happened.

It’s not clear if the woman was in the structure or next to it, but neighbours and firefighters supported it while the woman, in her 70s, was treated by paramedics.

The air ambulance was also called and landed in a nearby field but she was taken to Medway Maritime Hospital by land ambulance as a priority.

She was conscious and breathing.

The driver was uninjured but in shock.
