A man arrested over the death of 15-year-old Dylan Crossey has been re-bailed until May 8, pending further enquiries.

The 42-year-old from New Longton was first arrested on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving and drink driving on October 8, the day after Dylan was knocked off his bike in Chain House Lane, Whitestake.

Police said the talented footballer had been cycling towards Penwortham Way when he was involved in a collision with a silver 3 Series BMW vehicle which failed to stop at the scene.

He suffered serious head and neck injuries and died the next day at Manchester Children’s Hospital.

Police recovered a silver BMW 3 Series from an address in New Longton on the same day.
