10:29am Friday 1st March 2013 in News
BOSSES of hit TV drama Shameless said it was not their pink limousine that crashed through the gates of Burnley College.
The college’s CCTV captured the pink Lincoln Town car knocking the gates off their hinges, driving through the car park before crashing into a fence on the football pitch.

It was believed to have been the same limo used by character Mickey Maguire in Shameless, written by Burnley-born Paul Abbott.
But that limo is still sitting on the back lot of the Chatsworth Estate at the Shameless studios.
The footage of the crash was uploaded to YouTube and has since had over 1,000 hits.
The incident happened at 5.30pm on February 12.
Police said the driver lost control when the vehicle’s brakes failed and he had to take evasive action.
