AN ELDERLY couple had to be cut from the wreckage of their overturned car after a terrifying crash.

Firefighters used specialist gear to remove the roof of the Suzuki Signis which swerved out of control and ended up on its side in Winstanley Road, Ashton.

The occupants - a man in his 70s and a woman in her 60s - were believed only to have suffered whiplash injuries and were taken to Wigan Infirmary for precautionary tests.

A police spokesman said that no other vehicle was involved.
