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."
