Five people were injured last night after a car ploughed into pedestrians in Greater Manchester.

Police were called to Europa Way, in Trafford Park, at 9.50pm to reports that a car had collided with a number of pedestrians.

Emergency services attended the scene and a North West Ambulance Service spokeswoman (NWAS) said the five people were being treated for "serious injuries"

The car failed to stop at the scene and police were last night attempting to trace the vehicle.

Four ambulances and a hazardous area response team attended the scene, along with three senior clinicians.

A spokeswoman for the North West Ambulance Service said three people had been taken to the Salford Royal, and one patient had been taken to the Manchester Royal Infirmary.

There is no evidence to suggest the incident is terrorism-related, Greater Manchester Police said.
