A 16-year-old girl has been arrested after a stolen bus crashed into 16 parked cars.

The bus was taken from a depot in Stockport, Greater Manchester, in the early hours of Tuesday morning.

It was driven to Reddish, where it collided with at least 16 cars, some of which were written off.

A girl, from Heaton Norris, Stockport, was later arrested on suspicion of theft of a motor vehicle. She is being questioned by officers.

A set of traffic lights and railings were damaged by the bus and at least 16 stationary cars on Woodhall Road and Beechwood Avenue were also damaged.

A spokeswoman for Greater Manchester Police said: "It is believed the single-decker bus was stolen from the Daw Bank bus depot in Stockport.

"No-one was injured during the incident and the bus was not in collision with any moving vehicles, but several thousand pounds worth of damage was caused to the stationary cars and some are thought to have been written off."
