Emergency services descend after car ploughs into back of butchers' shop

The back of a Tameside butchers' shop has been ruined after a car ploughed into it. Dramatic images from the scene show a red Suzuki Swift had crashed into the back of Boult's Butchers, in Stalybridge.

Firefighters were seen working in the area following the collision, which took place this afternoon (February 12) on Back Melbourne Street. Images show the rear wall of Boult's Butchers appears wrecked, with debris on the ground next to the car.

At least half of the Suzuki appears to be inside the butchers' shop following the smash. Damage to the rear wall could also be seen inside the premises, through the shop's front window.

Police were in attendance alongside firefighters. Luckily, the shop had been closed to customers today (Monday), with a sign on the window telling shoppers the business would reopen on Tuesday.

Allan Bentley, who captured images from the scene, told the Manchester Evening News: "By an amazing stroke of luck they've had the day off and are back in tomorrow according to a note on the shop window. People driving past could be heard shouting 'you can't park there' and 'it's not a drive through'."

Several firefighters were seen in attendance in the area following the collision. A walkway by the side of Boult's Butchers was also taped off on Melbourne Street.

Greater Manchester Fire and Rescue Service confirmed it attended the incident at around 3.30pm. Greater Manchester Police and Tameside Council have been approached for comment.
