Police are appealing for witnesses after an officer was injured whilst attending an attempted burglary in Davyhulme.

Shortly after 1am on Monday 16 September 2019, police were called to reports of an attempted burglary, involving three men wearing dark clothing, at a property on Canterbury Road.

Officers attended and became suspicious of a black VW Golf on nearby Rochester Road.

As officers got out of their vehicle to speak to the occupants, the VW Golf accelerated towards them and collided with the police vehicle.

One of the officers managed to get back into the police car, however his leg was trapped in the door and subsequently crushed by the VW Golf as it made off. continue reading at
