A WOMAN was badly injured after her out-of-control car crashed in Wigan.

Firefighters from Hindley and Atherton spent an hour releasing the driver from the vehicle using specialist cutting equipment.

It was though she veered off a bend in Bickershaw Lane, at the junction of Rivington Drive and Beacon Road, at 3.10pm on Thursday.

She was taken to hospital in an air ambulance and was fully conscious.
