A CAR has smashed into the front of a city centre chemist shop this afternoon.

This is the scene on Rawson Road, outside 1st Pharmacy, near the Oastler Centre.

Police and paramedics are at the scene and the front of the shop is cordoned off.

A West Yorkshire Police spokesman said the call came in at around 12.15pm and involved a Kia Picanto.

He confirmed no-one had been injured in the crash, but the driver of the car had been checked over by paramedics. 

It's understood the building will be assessed for any structural damage.
