Several police officers have been hurt after a stolen car was used to ram two police cars in Greater Manchester.

It happened in the early hours of Sunday when officers were called to reports of an attempted burglary on Sylvan Avenue in Timperley.

As the suspects fled from the house in a suspected stolen car, they rammed a marked police vehicle and an unmarked GMP car before managing to get away.

No arrests have been made and the stolen vehicle was later recovered. GMP are appealing for any witnesses or neighbours with CCTV footage to come forward.

"Several of our officers were injured in this incident.

"Two police vehicles were significantly damaged including the pictured liveried vehicle and in addition to that a plain police vehicle, unmarked car.

"No arrests were made and police are appealing for witnesses, CCTV or further information."

Man arrested after woman found dead in Leigh

A man is in custody after a woman was found dead at a house in Leigh.

Police were called to a house on Maple Crescent at around 10am this morning after a woman was found unconscious.

Despite the best efforts of the paramedics who administered CPR at the address, the woman, believed to be in her 20s, was pronounced dead.

A man aged 22 has been arrested on suspicion of murder and remains in custody for questioning.

I appreciate this is distressing news for people in the area but as there is a scene in place, we wanted to inform you of the details. There’s likely to be a lot of police activity throughout the day as we commence our investigation but we’ll try to keep the disruption to the local area as minimal as possible. We are doing our best to support the family of the woman and our thoughts are with them at this incredibly difficult time.
