A family have been seriously injured in a collision near Bredbury.

Shortly before 4.30pm on Sunday 26 July 2015, there was a collision involving two vehicles on Crookilley Way near to junction 25 of the M60 for Bredbury.

It is very early stages but we are in the process of piecing together the circumstances that led to this tragic incident. I would urge anyone who may have witnessed the collision to speak to police."
