A luxury Bentley smashed into a pensioner's car head on as the driver sped through a quiet village at '85mph'.

The Ford 4X4 spins 360 degrees into a wall, in a little road in Old Amersham in the Chiltern Hills, supposed to be a 20mph zone, according to reports.

Speaking to the Daily Mail, Mr Edwards said: "I pulled out when the road looked clear and all of a sudden, this Bentley came out of nowhere.

"There was no time to be frightened or anything like that, it was over in a flash."
