TWO women arrested after the sports car they were driving smashed through the front of Bournemouth's PureGym window have been released without charge.
A Toyota Celica GT car ploughed through the main window of the 24-hour gym, at The Triangle, on Friday.
Recovery workers attending the scene said it was a miracle nobody was seriously injured.
Gym members were working out at the time of the accident, which ended with the car coming to rest near a row of exercise bikes. Several pieces of cardio equipment were damaged.
A Dorset Police spokesman confirmed: “ A 32-year-old woman from Bristol and a 27-year-old woman from Bournemouth were arrested to help officers establish what had happened. They have both been released without charge.”
PureGym remains closed for repair work. However, a spokesman told the Daily Echo they are working to ensure the premises reopens as soon as possible.
