The car was seen on its side after clipping the metal bell, which stops vehicles mounting the pavement to protect pedestrians on the Gun Lane junction.

An ambulance was also at the scene and police tape was put around the car.

A spokesperson for the force said: "We were called at 11.20am to this incident which happened in the High Street.

"The collision involved one vehicle, a Fiat 500, and there were no reported injuries."

It has damaged a number of cars over the years and even caused some to flip.
