The dramatic moment a car ploughed into a parked vehicle and destroyed a couple's front room

This is the dramatic moment a car ploughs into a parked vehicle during a police chase.

The impact of the crash sends a concrete gate post flying into a house on St Helen's Road, in Bolton, Manchester, wrecking the front room.

The clip shows the vehicle being forced up over the stationary car because of the force of the collision. It then spins out of control, leaving debris and clouds of smoke behind it.

The police chase began on Deane Church Lane just before 1.30am on Thursday morning
