The white Vauxhall Corsa was left embedded under three floors of scaffolding following the smash at Wakefield Road, Moldgreen at 9.30pm last night.

The building at the junction of Smithy Lane, next to Lidl, is earmarked to be demolished.
Firefighters from Huddersfield station cut the rear off the car and removed the seats to bring the woman out the back.
A West Yorkshire Police spokesperson said she was taken to hospital but has now been discharged.
