‘It could have hit me’: Shoppers’ shock after car collides into Bermondsey Iceland

Shoppers told of their shock this afternoon after a car collided through the front window of a Bermondsey Iceland.

The driver of the silver/grey Nissan Almera smashed through the glass frontage on Bermondsey’s Southwark Park Road shortly before 4pm, possibly while attempting a manoeuvre, according to witnesses at the scene.

“I was being served at the time,” said one Iceland shopper who didn’t wish to be named. “And all of the sudden, a car came right through the front door.

“I was the first customer when it came through, I was right by it.”

The Iceland customer was standing first in the queue – so close to where the car collided, the impact knocked the end of his trolley, he said.

“I was a couple of feet away at most. It had come through the first window instead, it could’ve hit me, and that’s the truth of it.”

“But I’m more worried about other people than myself. It really scared the cashier.

“I’m just pleased nobody was hurt.”



Another eye-witness, Tracey, said she was about go into the store to pick up milk with her niece when the collision happened.

“I’m quite shook up, it was so quick,” she said.

“A mum was coming past with her kid in a pram. If it had been a few more seconds, it could’ve hit them.”

“I think so many people are shook-up,” said a third shopper, who did not wish to be named.

Police said they were called at 3.53pm and said there were no reports of serious injuries and no arrests.
