The building sits on the junction of Frith Road and Priory Road and was damaged by the crash, which also involved a van and happened just before 12.30pm

The former pub, which previously traded as The Black Rabbit, has sustained a large amount of damage where the horse box collided with one of its walls.

The incident was attended by the air ambulance, and four people needed to be treated for injuries.

Two of the casualties suffered head injuries and all four were conscious at the scene and taken to the William Harvey Hospital by land ambulance.

The horse box was carrying two horses at the time of the crash.
