Hula Animal Rescue closed its store in Woburn Sands after a car crashed into the shop today.

Nobody was hurt by the out-of-control vehicle. The shop is closed on a temporary basis, whilst repairs will be carried out.

Donations can still be made to the charity online here.

A spokesperson for the charity said: "Luckily the driver, shop staff and bystanders were not hurt in the collision, however we do now have to close the shop to make necessary repairs to ensure it is safe.

"We were very much enjoying seeing you all again and are saddened by this accident, but glad that no one was injured. We do hope to be reopening as soon as is possible. In the meantime, if you have any donations you were planning on bringing to our shop, we can accept these at our animal rehoming centre at Glebe Farm."

The farm is located on Salford Road, in Aspley Guise.

Hula, is a small animal adoption centre, specialising in finding new homes for animals who are in vulnerable situations. Typically the charity looks after rescue dogs, cats and small animals.
