Imanuz Zaman, owner of Taza, said the business is open as usual after the crash.

The 64-year-old said: β€œIt happened at around 8pm, it was a Monday so it was not too busy. There were some customers inside at the time.

"Some customers were quite lucky because they were by the window on the other side.”

Mr Zaman said another vehicle hit the restaurant a few years ago on the side where the other customers were sitting last night.
