The 21-year-old policewoman was injured after potential thieves rammed a police car after an attempted robbery

A police officer went to the hospital tonight after being injured when thieves rammed their patrol car after attempting to rob a business park.

A manhunt is underway after the 21-year-old policewoman was injured in the Atherton accident and the car was found abandoned nearby.

Police said they had been called tonight over reports of break-ins into units at the Bluebell Business Park on Bolton Road in the city of Wigan.

A GMP spokesman said when officers arrived in a patrol car they found the gates to the construction site closed so they parked their car in front of the gates.

The two officers then got out of their vehicle but saw a vehicle approaching the gates.
