Car plows through front garden of Boris Johnson’s £1.3m London townhouse

A car has crashed into the front garden of the Prime Minister’s £1.3 million London townhouse.

Police were called to Boris Johnson’s Camberwell property at 1.19am on Monday morning where they discovered a Vauxhall Astra which had plowed through the front wall, damaging a hedge and a tree.

Neighbors said the house had been “targeted by the protesters” in recent weeks and several cars had stopped outside the three storey building “playing Russian music” loudly with their windows down.

The Metropolitan Police said no offenses had been identified and the driver of the vehicle had suffered a “minor injury”.

Neighbors told The Times they were woken by a “loud bang” when the car crashed and the vehicle could still be seen in the front garden this morning.

Residents said there had been issues in the area recently with speeding drivers using the quiet street as a rat run and there had been efforts to get speed bumps installed as a result.

The Prime Minister purchased the four-bedroom semi-detached South London property with Carrie, his wife, in July 2019 for £1.2 million, according to Land Registry documents.

PM not seen at house in two years

Boris Johnson, who lives with his family at the four-bedroom flat above No 11 Downing Street, has reportedly not been seen at the house for at least two years.

Mr Johnson’s 50 per cent share in the Camberwell property is included in the register of MPs’ interests, which notes that he has received rental income of at least £10,000 a year from December 2019.

A Metropolitan Police Spokesman said: “Officers attended and found a car that had struck the exterior of a property causing minor damage.

“The driver of the car sustained a minor injury and was assessed by paramedics but did not require hospital treatment. No offenses were identified.”
