Several officers have been injured after a stolen vehicle was used by burglary suspects to ram two police vehicles in Trafford as they attempted to flee from the scene of a burglary.
The incident occurred in the early hours of Sunday morning (27th Jan) when officers were called to reports of an attempted burglary on Sylvan Avenue, Timperley.
Upon arrival at the scene, officers disturbed the suspects whilst they were in the middle of ransacking a property.
Before officers had a chance to confront the suspects, they had exited the address and managed to get into their stolen vehicle.
The stolen vehicle then rammed the officers cars, including an unmarked vehicle, before it managed to get away.
GMP Trafford South shared some images of one of their vehicles that had been badly damaged by the suspects.
A spokesperson for Greater Manchester Police said:
“Officers from D and C Relief were quick to the scene.
“Offenders, using a stolen vehicle, rammed two police vehicles as they tried to escape.
“The stolen vehicle was recovered.
“If anyone has any information or CCTV please call 101 quoting Log 514 / 270119”.
A spokesperson for the Greater Manchester Police Federation said:
“Wishing our colleagues well”.

WE NEED YOUR HELP.Here at Emergency Services News, we aim to tell you stories that the mainstream media are not interested in reporting. Whilst the MSM love to berate and ridicule the emergency services, who is there to report on the realities of serving on the front line?
Emergency Services News is currently a loss-making entity. But our team of volunteers, all former emergency services personnel, do not do it for the money.
We do it because we are sick and tired of the mainstream media constantly trying to undermine the men and women who put their lives on the line to keep you and your family safe.
How many MSM journalists who speak ill of the emergency services have actually dared to don the uniform and risk their own lives to save the life of a complete stranger? If you would like to help back our mission of reporting on fact-based news, then please consider helping to support us financially.
