Police were called to the scene at 10.15pm on Saturday following reports a silver Mercedes had been in a collision with a red Nissan Micra.

Kulwant Singh , who was driving, and his sister, in the passenger seat, had sustained fatal injuries.

Two teenage brothers, who were in the back of the Micra, aged 16 and 17, were taken to Salford Royal with serious head injuries.

One is said to be stable while the other is 'very poorly'.
