Arrest after social club car smash
FIREFIGHTERS cut a man free from his car after it barrelled through a plate glass window and into the bar of Coppenhall Working Men’s Club in Crewe.
Cheshire Fire service had to prop the building on North Street up with special support equipment while they rescued the driver from inside his silver Renault people carrier.
Three fire engines, an ambulance rapid response vehicle, an advanced paramedic and a community first responder rushed to the scene at 6.48pm on Sunday, November 8.
Once freed, the 45-year-old driver from Crewe was taken to Leighton Hospital, where he was treated for minor injuries.
He has been arrested on suspicion of criminal damage and released on police bail.
No-one else was injured during the incident.

Cheshire Police have launched an investigation to establish the circumstances surrounding the collision.
