Emergency services attended the scene of a road traffic accident in the Square at Dobcross. (September 3)
A house at the corner of Platt Lane and the village war memorial have been damaged.
A council spokesman said: “The area has been made safe by council staff and we are currently assessing the damage.
“The monument is a focal point of the village and we are disappointed that it has been damaged.
“Once we have a clearer picture of what work is needed we’ll update people.”
The monument, erected by public subscription more than a hundred years ago as a tribute to Saddleworth’s first medical officer of health Walter Henry Fox Ramsden, was previously knocked over on Christmas Eve, 2017.
