Police are hunting a car driver who left a scene of devastation when he ran away after crashing into the front of a house in Cheltenham, Gloucestershire.

The incident happened in Malden Road, Fairview, Cheltenham, on June 10, and resulted in 'significant damage to the front of a house,' said a Gloucestershire Police spokesperson.

"The collision happened at around 7.30am on Friday 10 June.

"Officers have conducted a number of enquiries since the incident and would now like assistance from the public to identify the man pictured in connection with the incident."
