A 31-year-old man has been charged with drink driving after crashing a BMW into a jet wash at a petrol station.
Norfolk Police were called to the Co-op on Lowestoft Road just after 10pm on Thursday (December 4) to reports of the collision.
Officers attended and a man was arrested on suspicion of drink driving after failing a roadside breath test.
Sam Taylor, of Tennyson Road in Great Yarmouth, was later charged with failing to provide a specimen of breath and bailed to appear before the town's magistrates court on February 12 next year.
Tyre marks were visible on a grass verge off the roundabout next to the petrol station on Thursday morning (December 5).
Damage at the scene included debris from the car, with a tail lamp and broken plastic strewn in the undergrowth of a hedge next to the jet wash.
A panel in the shelter surrounding the car wash had been cracked in the collision.
Co-op declined to comment.
