A car has crashed into a garden wall in Oswaldtwistle after it sped away from police.

Officers approached the vehicle on Mayfield Avenue at around 7pm on Friday, before the occupants made off and moments later crashed into a property on Oakfield Crescent.

Two men dressed in black got out the vehicle and ran in separate directions before officers could catch them.

It is unknown why police wanted to speak to the man and the search for them is ongoing.
