The mum of Britain's biggest family, Sue Radford, has shared a photo of the street with a police van and a fire engine.

Mum-of-22 Sue Radford has been caught in a crash this week, leaving her family car completely destroyed.

The matriarch of Britain’s biggest family shared a photo from the scene, but confirmed no one had been hurt.

Taking to Instagram on Monday, Sue told her 50,000 followers that her vehicle was badly damaged, but didn’t explain what actually happened.

The photo saw a police van and a fire engine in the background, with Sue adding she was "so grateful" no children were in the car.

"Everyone was ok. 'Not how I expected my day to go but thankfully everyone was ok," she said.

"The car isn't but it's only metal and can be sorted. So thankful I didn't have the kids in the car though. Also thank you to all who stopped to ask if I was ok."

This comes after Sue and her husband Noel - who are the stars of Channel 5’s 22 Kids and Counting - would be taking a break from filming.

The couple are parents to Chris, 31, Sophie, 27, Chloe, 25, Jack, 23, Daniel, 21, Luke, 20, Millie, 19, Katie, 18, James, 17, Ellie, 15, Aimee, 14, Josh, 13, Max, 12, Tillie, 10, Oscar, nine, Casper, eight, Hallie, five, Phoebe, four, Archie, three, Bonnie, two, and Heidie.
