A teenager riding an e-bike has died after a collision with an ambulance in Salford, shortly after he was being followed by traffic officers.

Greater Manchester Police said traffic officers began following a 15-year-old boy on an e-bike along Fitzwarren Street in Salford at around 2pm on Thursday.

The force said the boy went into Lower Seedley Road and bollards prevented the police vehicle from continuing to follow him.

The teenager was then involved in a crash with an ambulance in Langworth Road “a short time later” in which he was killed.

A GMP statement said: “In line with normal proceedings, the incident has been referred to IOPC who are now leading the investigation.

“A cordon remains in place on Langworthy Road.

“Our thoughts are with the family and friends of the boy who tragically died.”
