A driver has been arrested in London after his car crashed through railings and became wedged in the basement of an apartment.

The Mercedes-Benz C220 smashed into the apartment block on Lancaster Terrace shortly after 5.15am on Friday.

The driver did not need hospital treatment and has been arrested on suspicion of drink-driving, police said.

"He has been taken into custody at a southwest London police station," a Scotland Yard spokesman added.

Onlookers queued to take photographs of the car after it ended up stuck vertically in the basement.
