THE wall of a golf club building collapsed after it was hit by a car.

Fire crews, police and paramedics were called to Morecambe Golf Club at about 2.15pm on Sunday after a car smashed into it.

Watch manager Steve Brown said: “An elderly gentleman had lost control of his car and run into the wall of the golf club on Marine Road East.

“Fortunately there were no injuries for the driver, the passenger or anybody in the golf club.”

However, he said the structure of the building was left unsafe.

He said: “He had run into the wall and the wall and window had collapsed and there were a couple of lintels hanging down.

“We made it safe in conjunction with Lancaster City Council who used a building contractor to prop it up.”
