Greater Manchester Police (GMP) said the woman's Nissan collided with a Mercedes which was "travelling on the opposing carriageway" on St Helens Road in Bolton at 19:00 GMT on Saturday.

GMP added that the woman, in her 60s, died "from her injuries" while the Nissan driver suffered serious injuries. The Mercedes driver also needed hospital treatment.
