Police are now appealing for any witnesses to the crash to come forward.

Sgt Adam Dawson said: “We are aware of a number of CCTV videos that have been uploaded by members of the public that cover the collision on social media. I would ask those people not to share these as they could influence the investigation at a later date and instead to come to us with the footage.

“Similarly, if there is anyone that was in the area at the time of the collision or was travelling through the area and has any dash cam footage or information that could assist, please contact the enquiry team on 101 quoting log number 1560 of January 10.”
