Emergency services attended and two people were taken to Wigan Infirmary via ambulance but were not thought to be seriously injured.

One of the vicims, Frank Woolley, of Orrell, said: “I feel fine but my wife’s been taken to hospital to be checked over. I just want to get home now - I hope I feel alright in the morning.”

The 69-year-old was about to turn into the health centre for an appointment when the vehicle crashed into him.
