Police have made seven arrests so far in connection with the murder but nobody has been charged yet.

They have now issued a fresh appeal for information and are keen to hear from witnesses who saw any vehicles being driven in an odd manner at around the time of the alleged killing.

Detective Constable Dean Craik said: “We’re interested in hearing from anyone who was travelling along the A6102 Manchester Road that day (24 July) at around 7pm.

“In particular, I want to hear from people who were on the section of road between Vaughton Hill and More Hall Lane. “Did you see any vehicles driving strangely or erratically? Did you notice anything unusual that day?

“We would really like to hear from you. I’m also keen for anyone who has dashcam footage of this stretch of road, that evening to contact us.”

Six men, aged 18, 22, 23, 34, 30, and 38, arrested on suspicion of murder have all been released on bail.
