The family of a woman who died in Radcliffe on New Year’s Eve has paid tribute to her. 

Sixty six year old Lorraine Bolton was one of two pedestrians hit by a car on Bury New Road near to the junction of Radcliffe Moor Road and was pronounced dead at the scene.

A man in his 60s was taken to hospital where remains in a critical condition.

The driver of a white Toyota Yaris, a man in his 70s, was also taken to hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

Paying tribute to her, Lorraine’s family said: “Lorraine was a daughter to Joan, Mum to Andrew, Jason and William and a Mother-In-Law to Tracey, Jo-Ann and Joanne.

“She was a doting Nan to Lauren, Rachel and Nathaniel.

“She was a quiet, gentle soul who was friendly, honest, well liked and kind.”
