Murder probe launched in Stockport after man in 30s killed and others injured when Audi A4 crashed into pedestrians outside nightclub

Cops were scrambled to The Salisbury Club in Stockport last night after the Bank Holiday smash.

A man, believed to be aged in his 30s, was rushed to hospital but he sadly didn't make it.

The Audi A4 hit a number of pedestrians before fleeing the scene.

It was later found abandoned on a lane of the M60 motorway.

Police believe the driver may have hopped a fence on the motorway and run away on foot.

Detective Inspector Kris Williams, of GMP's Stockport Borough, said: "My thoughts go out to the man's family who sadly have to deal with the tragic news that their loved one has died.

"We've already spoken to a number of witnesses in the area and will continue to do so to build a fuller picture of what has exactly happened but from what we know so far, we believe the driver of the car scaled the fence next to the M60 and ran away.

"Whatever information people have, I'd encourage them to contact us as a matter of urgency."

Anyone with information should contact police on 0161 856 9790 quoting reference number 2575 of 27/05/18 or the independent charity Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
