It read: “Shortly before 9.20pm last night (Wednesday 25 March 2020), police were called to Rochdale Road, Bury to reports of a collision involving an Audi car and a quadbike.
“Emergency services attended and the driver of the quadbike – a 29-year-old man – was seriously injured and taken to hospital for treatment.

The crash has come just months after the grime star proposed to his girlfriend before Christmas, after keeping out of the public eye for the past nine years.
He popped the question during a romantic trip to Paris, getting down on one knee while the pair were jetting down the Seine on a private boat.
Sharing the moment he proposed to his beautiful partner on Instagram, Bugzy wrote: “Because if you love her and she’s a real one bend the f**king knee! Not much scares me but after 9 years its time and I swear I was shook she said yes.. Paris its been a pleasure…”

His now-fiancee looked stunned as he appeared next to her on bended knee and produced a beautiful huge diamond ring in a box.
She nodded her head as he quietly asked her to marry him, choking up with emotion as he got up to give her a kiss.
The pair embraced as other thrilled diners watched on and applauded their big moment.
