The family of a woman who died after she was struck by a motorbike in Sale have paid tribute to her.

Nora Higgins, 88, from Sale Moor, Greater Manchester, was hurt in the collision in Dane Road at about 17:20 BST on Saturday.

She was taken to hospital with head and leg injuries but died shortly afterwards.

Her family said she was a devoted mother of three and had five grandchildren.

"Nora was a devoted mother to Rosaleen, Mary and Thomas and a dearly loved grandmother to Catherine, Elizabeth, Joseph, Clare and Theresa," they said.

"Born in County Roscommon in the west of Ireland, Nora spent many years in retirement helping Irish Community Care after a busy working life.

"During her long and active life, she loved to cycle and was a keen gardener.

"She was a regular at the Holy Family church in Sale Moor and will be sadly missed by family and friends alike."
