VIDEO: Eyewitness explains lucky escape

Amy Thompson had a narrow escape when a car smashed through the window of Fairbairn’s butcher shop in Berwick.

“It was very frightening,” said Amy, who works in Ramsden’s, next door to Fairbairn’s. “I saw the whole thing happen as I walked up Hide Hill. The car just took off through the butcher’s window. I’m lucky to be standing here now, I was just yards away from it.

“It knocked me off the pavement. I just jumped out of the way. If I’d ben one second faster I would have been underneath the car.”
