Fourteen hurt in hit-and-run

Fourteen people were taken to hospital today after a car ploughed into a group of people outside a nightclub.

Police are hunting the motorist and his passenger who deliberately mounted the pavement in Rochdale, Greater Manchester, in a stolen Saab.

The incident happened at 2.10am today outside the Dali Bar on Packer Street, police said.

It is thought the men in the car had earlier been refused entry into the bar.

Seven men and seven women needed treatment for their injuries, none of which are believed to be life threatening.
