Just one person was in the car – a male driver, the spokesperson added. No arrests were made. Allan Bentley, who captured images from the scene, told the Manchester Evening News: “By an amazing stroke of luck they’ve had the day off and are back in tomorrow according to a note on the shop window. People driving past could be heard shouting ‘you can’t park there’ and ‘it’s not a drive through’.” Firefighters were seen working in the area following the crash on Back Melbourne Street. Police officers also responded. A walkway by the side of Boult’s Butchers was taped off on Melbourne Street. Greater Manchester Fire and Rescue Service confirmed it attended the incident at around 3.30pm. Try MEN Premium for FREE by clicking here for no ads, fun puzzles and brilliant new features.
