Police are still trying to trace a road rage motorist and the truck he used to reverse into a lorry.

The incident, caught on CCTV, happened on November 9 at noon after two vehicles collided as they accessed a busy motorway.

Footage showed two men in a large lorry and a man in a pick-up truck on the M62 in Eccles exchanging numbers on the hard shoulder, moments before the abuse started.

Earlier Greater Manchester Police tweeted it had since located the truck, but still needed to trace the driver.

However, the force have now said said the vehicle had in fact not been found, and investigations continue.
