Emergency services attended but a 60-year-old man sadly died at the scene.

A 20-year-old woman and a 39-year-old man were taken to hospital with serious injuries.

A 12-year-old girl was taken to hospital but she has since been released.

A 48-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving.

He remains in custody for questioning.

Junction 16 of the M60 was closed, but has since been reopened.
