The vehicle crashed into the main entrance.


Other vehicles in the area also suffered damage. Early reports indicate that the driver failed to stop.

In a message on their FB page Central Bakery wrote


"Despite the drama this afternoon/evening....the shop will still be open tomorrow at 8am until 2pm as usual.

We will not been beaten..#justcarryonregardless

Thank you for all your kind wishes and help. We appreciate it"

In light of this challenge to their business in these extraordinary times, it is wonderful to hear such a 'positive' response from the bakery. Well done to their team and we wish you good luck in the future.

Joe William Stafford pleaded guilty to being over the legal limit having 89 micrograms of alcohol in 100 millilitres of breath (legal limit is 35) when he appeared before magistrates in Hereford this week.

Police were called after receiving reports that a motorist had driven the wrong way along a one-way street and had crashed into the Central Bakery in Leominster before fleeing the scene back in November which we reported here.

Mr Stafford had sent the bakery a cheque for £500 the court was told.

During an interview with Police, Stafford said he had been drinking wine while driving and was guilty as charged but had drove into the bakery shop front purely by accident while he was reaching to pick something up in his car.

Magistrates in Hereford disqualified Stafford from driving for 18 months and fined him £326 with costs of £135 and a £34 victim surcharge which he must pay.
