A woman has sadly died after this morning’s collision with a car on Stockport Road in Timperley.

Police were called shortly before 7.55am to a report of a collision between a cyclist and a car on Stockport Road in Timperley.

Emergency services attended and the female cyclist was taken to hospital where she sadly died.

The car left the scene, but a short time later two men were arrested in connection with this incident; both on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving and failing to stop at the scene of a road traffic collision.
