Investigators appeal for information following a collision last night in Manchester City Centre.

Around 9.25pm on Sunday 10 July 2022, Police reports of a collision involving a vehicle and pedestrians in the Piccadilly area.

Officers attended and established that a double decker bus had collided with three pedestrians.

All roads in the area were taped off for a time whilst those injured could get treatment and for the investigators to find out exactly what happened.

One pedestrian, a woman in her 50s, sadly died. Another woman in her 50s remains in hospital with serious injuries. A man in his 60s received treatment for minor injuries.

The bus driver remained at the scene and assisted officers with their enquiries.

Investigators are particularly interested in hearing from anyone with dash or helmet cam footage of the collision or from Piccadilly in the minutes beforehand.

Anyone with information should contact the Serious Collision Investigation Unit on 0161 856 4741. Information can also be shared anonymously via the independent charity – Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
