According to eye witnesses, the crash occurred after a police car responding to another incident drove through a red light and hit the Audi.

Deborah said: “It’s lucky nobody was injured. If somebody had been standing in the shop window it could have been a lot different.

“The crash caused a gas leak in the shop and must have caused a few thousand pounds worth of damage.”

South Yorkshire Police said: “The police car involved was responding to an incident when it was involved in the collision with another vehicle at around 4.20pm on Sunday 31 July.
