He said: "Several serious collisions have occurred in Greater Manchester over the last 24 hours.

"Many people sadly lost their lives and even more tragically included children with one younger than eight.

"Our thoughts are with families and friends who have lost, as well as those who are in a hospital with loved ones who are critically ill.

"I also want to recognize the actions of the first respondents together with our communities, which undoubtedly touched upon.

"We are still in the early stages of identifying the circumstances surrounding these collisions, but I think it serves as a clear reminder of the importance of road safety.

"It is and will continue to be a GMP priority and we are focusing not only on road control but also on cooperation with partners to educate people about its importance.

"When they get into the car tonight, I ask you to realize that you are out of yourselves, other road users and pedestrians.

"Simple things like tracking your speed, planning a trip so you do not feel like you have to hurry, avoid alcohol, and not watch your phone, could eventually save lives.

"If you are on a bicycle, you should wear high visibility clothing and have the appropriate lights, and if you are going, consider high-quality clothing and wearing a torch.

"I ask anyone with information about these collisions to contact our Department of Investigation of Major Collisions at 0161 856 4741 and help our officers understand exactly how they happened."
