First published in Pendle

A CAR crashed into an electrical substation providing power to Colne Primet High School.

The driver of the Renault Clio lost control of the car and went into the side of the building, causing it to partially collapse.

Electrical engineers checked the substation and said there was no danger or loss of power.

The incident happened at 9.45pm on Thursday.

A fire service spokesman said: “They had hit the substation head on and the airbags had deployed so they must have been travelling at about 30mph.

“They were all okay and refused to go to hospital.”
