Sir Ranulph Fiennes in car crash

Sir Ranulph Fiennes would have been in more than a few scraps in his life, having climbed Mount Everest as well as trekking to both the north and south poles, but he was caught in the middle of a different sort of scrap much closer to home yesterday when he was at the centre of a 3 car pile up in Stockport.

66 year old Fiennes who was returning from a 42-mile high-altitude marathon trek in the Peak District when the accident happened was said to be 'dazed', 'bloodied', but not seriously injured after his Jaguar hit a Nissan Micra which then collided into a Ford Focus.

Police have asked witnesses of the accident to come forward and call the Road Policing Unit on 0161-856 2220.
