POLICE investigating a fail to stop collision have issued CCTV footage moments before the incident took place.

At around 12.40pm on Saturday (June 6), a 30-year-old woman was about to cross Manchester Road at the zebra crossing, near to the junction of Higher Green Lane, when a motorbike came round the corner and collided with her. The rider fell off his bike, but got back on and rode away.

The woman suffered injuries to her leg, stomach and ribs and is being treated in hospital, where she remains in a stable condition.

The motorcyclist is described as wearing all blue leathers and a white helmet. The bike is described as an off-road style bike.

Police Constable Mike Bradley of the Road Policing Unit said: “A woman remains seriously injured in hospital following this collision, after the rider of the motorbike left without even calling an ambulance for her.

“The investigation team has been provided with footage from a dashboard camera, which shows four off-road motorbikes driving towards the crossing a short time before the collision took place.
