A young boy has died following a collision with a vehicle in a hotel car park in Greater Manchester.

Police were called to the Ibis Hotel on Trafford Road in Salford Quays just after 9pm on Thursday.

The child is reported to have been hit by a car in the hotel’s rear car park, which connects to a Marriott hotel next door.

Police vehicles and ambulances were seen lined up outside the building.

Armed officers were the first to attend the incident, but only because they were the closest to the scene.

Greater Manchester Police has confirmed it was not firearms related.

Forensic officers have been investigating the collision, but both hotels remain open.

Detectives have asked anyone with information about the collision to call Greater Manchester Police’s Serious Collision Investigation Unit on 0161 856 4741.
