A second girl has died after a New Year's Eve hit-and-run, police have confirmed.

Cousins Helina Kotlarova (12) and Zaneta Krokova (11) were hit by a black VW Golf on Ashton Road in Oldham.

Helina’s parents rushed to the scene, which is only 100 yards from their home but she was declared dead by medics.

Now Greater Manchester Police have confirmed that the Zaneta has died.

Witnesses described the car as driving fast and “flying away” after the collision. Police then launched a hunt for the driver.

Four men aged 59, 48, 38 and 18 remain in custody after being arrested on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving.
