A fire engine and a technical response unit were called to the scene.

Paramedics were also in attendance but no-one was taken to hospital.

Police confirmed no arrests have been made.

Director of environment at Wigan Council, Paul Barton, said: "Following the unfortunate accident in Atherton, where a vehicle collided with a council-owned bungalow, we have supported the resident to stay with a family member nearby temporarily while we search for an alternative property suitable for her needs. 

“We have also secured the site and will have the building assessed in the coming days in order to determine the full extent of the damage.”
