The family of a 17-year-old boy who was killed in a road traffic collision in Saddleworth on Monday morning has paid tribute to him.
Mohammed Zain from the Coppice area, died after the car he was travelling in as a passenger collided with a telegraph pole, sometime after 2.30am on Monday 7 November 2011, on Range Lane, Denshaw.
In a statement from the family, they said: “Mohammed Zain, who was known by the nickname “Ziggy”, was a bright light of a brother, grandson, son, nephew and friend.
“He will be forever in our hearts, but he has gone to a better place.”
“To our most recognised and handsome little one: we will always love you and miss you. You’re the best thing that ever happened to us. You will be missed by all.”
Three other people were taken to hospital for treatment to minor injuries, which are not believed to be life threatening.
An 18-year-old man who was arrested in relation to this incident has now been bailed pending further inquiries.
