A motorcyclist had died following a crash on the M60.

The biker, a man in his 60s, was taken to hospital with serious injuries on Thursday morning (September 17) after his Honda motorcycle crashed into a stationary Skoda Fabia.

Police have now confirmed he later died from those injuries.

The crash happened at 11.20am near junction 24 for Denton.

No arrests have been made and an investigation is underway.

Sgt Marie Eldred, of GMP's Serious Collision Investigation Unit, said: "Sadly this man has now passed away and all are thoughts are with his friends and family, who are being supported by specialist officers at this incredibly difficult time.

"Our enquiries remain ongoing as we determine the full circumstances surrounding this tragic incident.

"We would like to take this opportunity to appeal again to anyone who may have any information or dash-cam footage to contact police and assist us in our enquiries.

"We are still keen to speak to the driver of a blue HGV who we believe may have footage or information which could assist us."

The anticlockwise carriageway of the M60 was shut for several hours yesterday afternoon due to officers following the crash.

Traffic was queuing for more than three miles between Denton and Stockport.

Cars were also held on the clockwise carriageway for a short time to allow an air ambulance to land.
