Dorset and Wiltshire Fire and Rescue Service said they were sent to the site shortly before 6.30am on Sunday, arriving to find the two occupants already out of the car.

Images from the fire service show the blackened remains of the sports car buried beneath a collapsed brick wall.

The car’s original orange paintwork can still be seen on fragments of the wreckage.
