Pub re-opening ends in horror as woman hit by car during brawl on first night


The woman was hit by a car outside The Cornishman pub in Wythenshawe, Greater Manchester where a fight had broken out. The car then collided with another vehicle shortly afterwards. Pictures from the scene show several street bollards sprawled across the pavement, after being damaged during the collision.

The woman was taken to hospital to be treated for her injuries, which are not believed to be life threatening.

An investigation has since been launched by Greater Manchester Police after the incident which took place at 7.35pm last night. No arrests have been made.

Fire crews were also sent to assess the scene and help make the area safe.

A spokesperson from GMP said: “Officers were called around 7.35pm yesterday (Monday 12 April) to Cornishway, Manchester to a report of a group of people fighting.

It comes after pubs reopened yesterday for the first time this year. Prime Minister Boris Johnson urged the nation to “behave responsibly” as the hospitality industry welcomed customers back as part of the latest stage of his reopening plan.

Mr Johnson said: “I’m sure it will be a huge relief for business owners who have been closed for so long, and for everyone else it’s a chance to get back to doing some of the things we love and have missed.

“I urge everyone to continue to behave responsibly and remember ‘hands, face, space and fresh air’ to suppress Covid as we push on with our vaccination programme.”

Anyone with information regarding the incident can call police on 101 quoting log 2555 of 12/04/21, or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
