EMERGENCY services were called to a Westward Ho! amusement arcade at lunchtime today (Tuesday) after a car went through its front window.

The blue Rover 75 estate car ended up almost completely inside the Sunshine Leisure Amusements in Golf Links Road at about 12.20pm, with police, fire and ambulance in attendance soon after.

It is not thought the occupants of the car, an elderly couple in their 80s, were seriously injured although police said one had been complaining of chest pains.
