Tractor crash: Pharmacy open for business

A pharmacy which was hit by a tractor yesterday is still open for business.

Shah’s Pharmacy, in Valley Road, Liversedge, suffered damage when the tractor ran into it at about 10am on Sunday.

Emergency services said it was believed the throttle became stuck and the driver lost control.

He suffered minor injuries in the collision.

Pharmacy director Robert Andrew said despite the damage the business was open at 9am on Monday and would continue to trade as usual.

He said: “Our priority has been to ensure our patients’ and customers’ safety. As a precaution we have sealed off the area by the normal entrance so the area affected by the collision can’t be accessed, and we have created an alternative entrance.

“We have had building contractors out today and they have made the building stable.

“The staff have shown magnificent team spirit; they have all pulled together and have made sure all our customers are served and dealt with normally.”
