Tesco’s Saffron Walden petrol station has now re-opened following yesterday’s crash.
A spokesman for the supermarket giant confirmed the news to the Reporter this morning (Thursday).
Yesterday, a woman in her 90s was taken to Addenbrooke’s Hospital, in Cambridge, after her car smashed into the petrol station kiosk.
She suffered a minor head injury and was taken to hospital as a precaution. Nobody else was injured in the incident.
Firefighters sealed off the petrol station, on Radwinter Road, when they arrived at about 12.30pm. A building surveyor from Uttlesford District Council (UDC) was called to assess the damage and make sure the building was safe.

A Tesco store employee said an electrical fault had been identified but this has now been resolved. The petrol station was closed until about 11am today.
