A Police Scotland spokesperson said: "Around 8.30am on Monday, 25 April, offices received a report of a car having struck a property on Clarimalt Drive, Kirkcaldy. No one was injured as a result of the crash and enquiries into the incident remain ongoing."

There were also fears that the building could be in danger of collapsing, however Fife Council confirmed that a team is working on site to make repairs and ensure the property is safe.

Housing Manager with Fife Council Elaine Campbell said the council stepped in to support the families affected following Monday’s incident.

“We’ve offered emergency accommodation and financial help if it was needed as it wasn’t safe to allow people back into their homes.

Engineers are now working on site and we’re waiting for their report to confirm when it will be safe for people to get into their houses. We’re keeping in touch with everyone affected to keep them updated on progress during this difficult time.”
