Detectives have arrested a man after a gang attacked a house before 'repeatedly' ramming a car into it.

The Mercedes was left embedded in the front of the home in Manchester Road, Bury, following the incident at about 12:40am on Monday 4 October.

Residents said they saw a number of men carrying baseball bats smash the house's windows before reversing a 'black car' into a Mercedes parked on the drive.

The impact caused the Mercedes to smash through the front of the property, causing extensive damage. Two cars were recovered from the scene.

A 22-year-old man has since been arrested on suspicion of criminal damage. He remains in custody for questioning.
