No further details about this person have been released at this stage. As emergency crews responded late into the evening, a huge cordon was established on Osborne Street.

Residents criticized the way drivers treated the residential street as a “crossing” and a “rat run”. A 51-year-old local man said he returned from vacation today to find police hanging around the street where he has lived for 23 years.

“It’s terrible, absolutely terrible. Nothing has happened in this regard,” he said.

His neighbor said: “There are a lot of cuts. It’s a rat race.”

The air ambulance was seen leaving the scene just after 7.15pm after landing at Daisyfield Recreation Ground, known locally as The Daisy.

A spokesman for Greater Manchester Fire and Rescue Service (GMFRS) said in a statement: “Just after 5.20pm this evening (Monday 10 June), fire crews were called to reports of a road traffic collision on Osborne Street, Stockport. Whitehill Fire Brigade quickly arrived at the scene, which involved two vehicles.
