Police investigating the murder of a teenager who was hit by a car and then stabbed in the neck have arrested two further people.

Two males, aged 19 and 17, were arrested on Tuesday in connection with the death of Abdul Hafidah.

The 18-year-old was hit by a car and then stabbed on 12 May in Moss Side, Manchester, and died later in hospital.

Police believe he was chased near Greenheys Lane before being hit by a blue Vauxhall Corsa on Moss Lane East.

A post-mortem examination revealed he died of a stab wound to the neck. Four others arrested in connection with his death, including a boy of 14, were released on bail until 20 July.

Police are continuing to appeal for anyone who may have dash-cam footage of the incident or the area and said the attack took place in a busy area during rush hour.
