Police are investigating after a man died in a collision in Bolton.

At about 7.15pm on Friday October 6th, a green VW Passat was driving on the westbound carriageway of Topp Way in Bolton, when it collided with a man who was crossing at the pedestrian crossing.

The man, aged 72, sadly died in hospital.
