The family of a young woman who was killed in a collision with two cars in Wigan has said they ‘hope that she finds peace with her mum in heaven’.

Emergency services were called to Ormskirk Road around 12.45am on Sunday, July 20, after reports of a collision between a pedestrian and two taxis.

Today, in a heartfelt statement, Megan’s family said: “Megan Louise Hoskins was a fun loving 20-year-old girl who lived life to the full.
