Police are appealing for information after a pregnant woman’s car was stolen in Chorlton, Manchester.

A teenager has been arrested following a robbery which has left a delivery driver fighting for his life in hospital.

Just after 9pm on Friday (8 January 2021), officers were called to a report of a road traffic collision on the junction of Lyme Grove and Hazel Avenue in Romiley.

At this stage, it is believed a vehicle was taken from a man, a delivery driver, during a robbery which was then in collision with the victim shortly afterwards.

A man in his 50s was taken to hospital where he remains in critical condition.
