A man has been left with a mammoth clean up after a man crashed through the window of his Upper Riccarton fish and chip shop.

Owner Duc La has run Upper Riccarton Fish Supply for 25 years and says he's never seen anything like it before.

A man accidentally hit the accelerator instead of the brakes in front of the takeaway shop, ramming into the front of the building. No one was in the shop at the time of the incident.

Mr Duc said the incident was "unbelievable".

"We had to chuck everything away. The dust and glass went everywhere."

It will be a late night ahead for Mr Duc, as he has to wait in the store for the window repair man to arrive.

But what did the "young man" who crashed the car have to say?

"He couldn't say anything, just 'sorry'."
