Police Constable Simon McEvoy said: “I would firstly like to thank those who have come forward and helped us with our enquiries. From what we have been told, we believe a black Audi estate and blue BMW estate were behind the Mini before the collision.

“I would ask the drivers of both those cars to come forward and let us know what happened. We have examined the CCTV and although we do not see the incident itself, an image of a Skoda Fabia VRS has been retrieved.

“It is likely the Skoda will have damage to the nearside and I would appeal to anyone who may have witnessed the collision or recognises the car from the image released to come forward.”

Anyone with information should phone police on 0161 856 8809.
