BURLEYHURST Lane in Wilmslow was closed for more than two hours last night after a crash involving two cars.

A black VW Golf and a silver Toyota crashed with each other at around 7pm.

Emergency services were called to the scene and police closed the road in both directions. The road was reopened at 9.47pm.

Firefighters from Wilmslow and Wythenshawe had to cut a door off one of the vehicles to get the driver out.

A spokesman for Cheshire Fire Service said: “The crews assisted paramedics with two casualties, removing the door from one of the vehicles so a casualty could get out, and made the scene safe.”

Both drivers were seen to by paramedics and did not have serious injuries.
