Brits have all been left saying the same thing after a van reversed into an optician.

A white van rear-ended a branch of Specsavers in Cheapside, Lancaster, at 9:30am on Tuesday (May 23).

The window of the shop was smashed in and the driver of the van is understood to have remained in the area while they waited for cops to arrive.

The shop opened at 8:30am however no one was hurt in the incident.

Speaking on Tuesday, a spokesperson for the store explained business would continue as usual.

They told theLancaster Guardian: "The store remains open as police have been and made the area safe.

"The damage is to the front of the store windows, which will be boarded up shortly and replaced."

Online, however, things have become a lot more raucous with people being quick to comment on an image taken of the incident and posted on Reddit.

The image was posted with the caption: “I bet you can’t guess what everyone was saying to the van driver!”

One person commented: “I can just imagine the internal struggle going on in everyone's mind.

"'Do I say should have gone to Specsavers, or do I say can't park there mate'".

Another added: “Should have gone to Specsavers, but not like this!”

“Should have gone to Vision Express!” another chimed in, while another went down a similar route with: “'Should have gone to – oh.'”

Finally, buried down at the bottom of the comments section, one person added: “Would it be ‘should have gone to Specsavers’ by any chance”?

At the time of writing, almost 300 comments have been left on the site. You can guess what kind of angle most of them go for.
