A man has died after he was hit by a car along with two children and a woman in Manchester.

The crash happened at the junction of Hollyhedge Road and Woodhouse Lane in Wythenshawe on Tuesday.

The 47-year-old man died last night, police said.

"My thoughts are with the man and his family. I can’t begin to imagine what they are going through. Our specialist officers are helping them through this incredibly difficult time.

"Our investigation is still ongoing and we are still appealing for witnesses. We would like to hear from anyone who witnessed the incident or who may have dash-cam footage showing the collision."
