Police are appealing for witnesses after a woman was struck by a tram in Chorlton yesterday (Thursday 6 October 2022) at around 12.45pm, leaving her with life-changing injuries.
The 31-year-old was hit by a Metrolink tram, that was travelling from Rochdale to East Didsbury.

Emergency services attended the scene and she was taken to hospital. Specialist officers have been deployed to support her and her family at this difficult time.
