A blue Vauxhall Astra, also involved in the collision, was travelling in the opposite direction towards Oldham.

The driver of the VW Polo, a 25-year-old man, was taken to hospital by air ambulance. He remains in a serious condition.

Police Constable Sandra Turnball said: “The driver of the VW Polo remains in a serious condition and we are continuing to investigate the circumstances leading up to the collision.

“The area is well used by walkers and dog walkers and so I am making a further appeal to those people who may have either witnessed the collision or who saw any of the vehicles involved in the moments beforehand to come forward and speak to us.

“We are particularly keen to trace any CCTV, including any ‘dash cam’ footage which may assist in our understanding of what happened.”
