A DRIVER has thanked nursery staff who came to his aid following a two-car crash — four weeks after his wedding.

Scott Taylor was driving in Ainsworth Road when the collision between his red Ford Fiesta and another car occurred at the junction with Belgrave Street.

The 24-year-old, who lives in Radcliffe, suffered minor injuries and was given pain relief by paramedics.

He said: "At first my right arm was aching. Then my stomach, neck and the bottom of my back began hurting.

"The damage to my vehicle was significant. It was all crushed up. The rear window was smashed and I cannot even open the boot."

A member of staff at nearby Mary Kelly's Rascals Day Nursery called 999 and police officers soon arrived to make the road safe and remove the vehicles.

The incident occurred shortly after 11am on Friday, September 28 — just over four weeks since his wedding day.

Mr Scott, a support worker in Bury, has praised the staff who invited him into the nursery building for a cup of tea and a sit down.

He said: "I'm just really grateful because the staff offered to bring me in and put my mind at ease. They were willing to make me a nice coffee."

The day after the crash, Mr Taylor revisited Mary Kelly's and gave them a box of chocolates and a card to say thank you.
