The court heard that there had been evidence to suggest Zongo Bn, who is from the Ivory Coast, inflicted wounds upon herself during the incident.

Following the incident, Atherton Road was shut in both directions, between the junctions of Leigh Road and Westleigh Lane.

Two medical helicopters, two ambulances, two rapid response cars, and two advanced paramedics were also called out.

The hearing had been delayed as justices tried to find an interpreter but the court managed to find one by around 2pm.

No charge was put to the defendant and no plea entered.
