A crew from Atherton fire station was in attendance to isolate the batteries of all the cars to prevent petrol igniting.

Police were first on the scene dealing with the three occupants of the Ford and Nissan.

An ambulance was called for a woman who complained of chest pains caused by the seatbelt and she was taken to hospital.

No-one else was injured.

Watch manager Steve Green said that the Ford was in by far the worst state with its front end stoved in while the parked vehicles suffered relatively minor damage.
