Tributes have been paid Shirley-Ann Dumbuya, a 38-year-old married mother-of-four from Moston, and final year nursing student at the University of Bolton who died on Thursday morning after her car was hit by a lorry on the M60
Paying tribute to her, her family said: “Our beautiful mum, words cannot express how amazing she was. A truly God-fearing inspiration to everyone she met.
“She will always be in our hearts and will always be sorely missed.
“Our rock, our mum – never ever to be forgotten. Hold your loved ones that little bit tighter and appreciate every moment no matter how small. We miss you mum.”
Shirley-Ann’s daughter added: “No words can express how much I love you, but you are with God now!
“You always said ‘be a fighter’, not physically but with your spirit and your soul – I love you!!!’
A 33-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of causing death by driving without due care and attention. He remains in custody for questioning.
Enquiries are ongoing and officers are appealing to anyone with information and dash cam footage to come forward and contact police.
