Finchley Street Closed After Woman Crashes Car Into Scaffolding


A PENSIONER had to be freed from her car last night after crashing into scaffolding surrounding a house in Finchley.

Police sealed off the area around the semi-detached house on the corner of Lynton Avenue and Mayfield Avenue at 7.30pm while they worked to free the 78-year-old, as they thought the scaffolding could collapse onto the car at any time.

The road was closed for two hours as police worked to contact the owner of the house, who was not at home. Officers who freed the woman from her ordeal said she was “very shaken”.
