Officers investigating a fatal collision in New Mills are seeking witnesses to the incident.

We were called to reports that a blue Skoda Fabia had been in collision with a lorry on Buxton Road, New Mills, at 4.10pm on Thursday, 12 September.

An 86-year-old man was pronounced dead at the scene and an 82-year-old man died after having been taken to Manchester Royal Infirmary.

The driver of the Skoda, an 89-year-old man, was taken to Manchester Royal Infirmary along with an 84-year-old female passenger who is currently in a critical condition.

The driver of the lorry, a 24-year-old man, was spoken to at the scene and there have been no arrests in connection to the collision.

The families of each of the people involved have been contacted and our thoughts are with them at this time.
