Girl, eight, dies after a collision with the car in Monton

An eight-year-old girl was hit by a car in Monton.

Paramedics fought in vain to save the child at the scene.

The collision occurred at the intersection of Monton Road and Cavendish Road.

A man was arrested on suspicion of death by dangerous driving.

In a statement, Greater Manchester police said: "Just before 10:40 am, police were called to report a collision between a blue Vauxhall Corsa and a pedestrian mall in Monton Road, Monton.

"The pedestrian – an eight-year-old girl – was treated by paramedics, but unfortunately was declared dead at the scene.

"A 24-year-old man was arrested for suspecting that he was killed by dangerous driving and remains in detention for interrogation.

"The Monton Road is currently closed between the Cavendish Road and the Half Edge Lane.
