Shocking images now show the back of the monster HGV embedded into the fronts of the two houses, severely damaging the brickwork and adjoining roof of the residential properties.

A witness claimed the HGV became stuck in a cul-de-sac and was attempting to reverse out when the crash happened, but nothing further has been confirmed yet.

The HGV was removed and Greater Manchester Fire and Rescue Service sent a fire engine to the scene following the incident, while a building inspector from Bolton Council has reportedly attended the scene to carry out a safety assessment and a structural report.

No further details have been revealed at this time.

A spokesperson for Greater Manchester Fire and Rescue Service said: "At around 10.30am on Tuesday 26 July, firefighters were called out to Napier Street, Bolton where a lorry had collided into two houses.

"The vehicle has been removed from the houses.

"A fire engine from Horwich Fire Station attended the scene and has now handed the incident over to a building inspector from the local council who is carrying out an assessment of the properties damaged."

An Asda spokesperson said: "We are very sorry about the accident that happened in Horwich today and are working to help fix the damage as soon as possible."
