Fatal crass on Langworthy Road

BBC report:

"A teenage boy who was riding an electric bike has died after a collision with an ambulance in Salford.

Greater Manchester Police (GMP) said the child was being followed by traffic officers, before their path was blocked by bollards.

The 15-year-old boy then cycled on and was subsequently involved in the crash on Thursday afternoon.

The incident had been referred to the Independent Office for Police Conduct (IOPC) which oversees police conduct.

At about 14:00 BST, the boy was followed by traffic officers along Fitzwarren Street and onto Lower Seedley Road, where bollards blocked the police vehicle's way.

A short time later he collided with the ambulance in Langworthy Road, police said.

The boy was taken to hospital but later died, the IOPC said. "
