A CAR smashed into the Lidl supermarket in Farnworth this morning after the driver had fallen ill at the wheel.

At about 7.45am a silver Vauxhall Vectra ploughed into the side wall of the supermarket's car park in Albert Road.

It is understood that the driver, a man in his 40s, who has since been taken to the Royal Bolton Hospital, had fallen ill at the wheel prior to the accident.

A North West Ambulance Service spokesman said: "At about 7.40am we received a call and send a rapid response vehicle and an ambulance to Albert Road.

"We took a male, in his 40s, to the Royal Bolton Hospital."

Police are not treating the incident as suspicious.

Jeremy Culley, is it fair to say that the headline to this story has been sensationalised somewhat? "Car crashes into car park wall" Would be more accurate.
