A man who died after being struck by a car in Radcliffe has been named as Anthony Haughton. The 55-year-old pedestrian was killed in a collision on Water Street last Thursday, November 2.

In a heartbreaking tribute issued through Greater Manchester Police today (November 10), Anthony is described as a 'loving' family man who 'had so much to look forward to'. The family said: "Anthony was a loving father, son, brother, grandfather and partner.

“He was taken from us too soon and we are still coming to terms with this devastating news. He overcame many obstacles in his life and had so much to look forward to watching his children grow up. His loss has left a hole in our lives and we will miss him forever.”
