Dr Joseph Machta, from London, is seen stepping out of his black BMW after pulling up on his driveway on Monday. 

The paediatric registrar is captured on his video doorbell unlocking his front door while his car is seen slowly rolling towards a wall.

He added: ‘Also, so many people have been so incredibly kind in the replies. Thankfully, I am fine. 

‘The car is fine. The wall is fine. Thank you to all of those who have wished me and my NHS colleagues well. We are here for you if you need us – please stay safe.’
