"As the police car entered the junction it collided with a Bentley, Continental.

"The passenger in the police car received minor injuries and only minor damage was caused to both vehicles.

"The police driver has been suspended from driving duties in line with normal procedure."

A witness told the Manchester Evening News: "I could see the Bentley had gone head-on into the bollards at the traffic lights and the car had been a bit bashed up at the front.

"I wondered who was driving the Bentley and when I had a quick look in the police car Nani was there sat in all his United training gear.

"He looked a bit shocked and it had created a bit of a scene as it is a very busy junction and there were three police cars there dealing with the incident."
