Emergency services were called to the flats on Lewin Street at around 4.20pm on Thursday.

One person was assessed at the scene for injuries, North West Ambulance Service confirmed.

Fortunately, no one needed to be taken to hospital.

A spokesperson for Cheshire Police said: "Officers attended and found a supermarket delivery van had collided with the roof of an underpass.

"Residents were evacuated from the address due to concerns over the structural safety of the building, although there were no reports of any injuries.

"Officers left the scene shorty after 9pm."

A Cheshire Fire and Rescue Service spokesperson added: “Fire crews attended a call to a dangerous structure after a vehicle collided with a row of flats.

“Firefighters isolated the gas and electric supply to all flats and put in place a full cordon around the building.

“A gas detector was used to check the area.

“Firefighters made sure all occupiers of the flats were accounted for.

“They retrieved personal belongings from the flats with the supervision of a structural engineer.”
