Police shut major south Manchester road after reports of crash

A major road in south Manchester was sealed off by police this evening after reports of a crash. Officers were called to the A6 Stockport Road in Longsight.

The road was taped off in both directions at Dickenson Road for around two hours on Saturday evening (April 9) due to what Transport for Greater Manchester described as a ‘police incident.’

Pictures from the scene show a badly damaged black BMW being towed away from the scene. Several police cars and officers could be seen standing in the road redirecting traffic.
