A Cheshire Constabulary spokesperson said that there were no reports of injuries but the female driver had been taken to the Countess of Chester Hospital by ambulance as a precaution.

One witness, who watched the car being taken away on a low loader lorry, said the bus stop had been severely damaged.

She said: “The bus stop has been completely destroyed. It is the one that the children wait at to go to school so it is very worrying.”
