click here to enlargeLocal residents thought the Co-op had been ram raided this week when two cars lost control on Liverpool Road and a Ford Fiesta crashed through the store’s window.



Mavis Batty said: "I heard a loud bang and went outside to see what was happening. I couldn't believe it.

I'm amazed no one was killed. It looked like the emergency services were trying to get someone out of the back.”

A police spokesman said both drivers had spoken to officers but no one was hurt and no arrests made.

Fortunately, the shop was closed when the smash happened.

Gary Booth, who runs the Irlam Boxing Academy above the store, said: "The Fiesta went right through the front of the shop."

Gillian Dunne, 43, rang the police because she thought the shop was being ram-raided.

She said: "I heard a loud bang and called the police. The cars looked like they were both write-offs."
