One woman, who saw the carnage unfold as she left the gym, said: “I walked out of the gym and heard a car alarm going off. I saw a woman in a black Range Rover sport with the front of her car literally hanging off driving away.

“I went over to the parked cars and saw multiple vehicles were smashed up. I was shocked – I couldn’t believe someone had done something like that.

“I heard it had something to do with her brakes. She said she was doing a U-turn and the car kept on going while she was trying to brake.”

Eventually, the Range Rover driver returned with her dad - and admitted liability before giving her details to one of the car owners, the woman said.

She called police to report the damage - but officers said there was little they could do without the vehicle registration plate.

However Merseyside Police confirmed they are now investigating the smash.

A spokesman for the force said: "A report was received just before 11.15am that seven vehicles had been damaged after a black Land Rover was in collision with six stationary vehicles at The Matchworks car park. The driver of the Land Rover has been located and enquiries into the incident are ongoing."
