The devastated family of a teenage cyclist killed in a collision with a car in Oldham has paid tribute to him.

Seventeen-year-old Trent Warburton from Oldham died from his injuries following the collision at 2.55am on Saturday in the town, which also left a 19-year-old cyclist critically ill in hospital.

Police had been called to the reports of the collision with a grey Vauxhall Insignia car at the junction with Hollinwood Avenue in Oldham.

A 27-year-old man was arrested nearby on suspicion of dangerous driving and drink driving. He has been bailed pending further enquiries.

Trent’s family have released one of their favourite pictures of him from 2015.

Paying tribute to him, his family said: “Trent was the much loved son of Terry Warburton and Janine Cave. Brother to Shannon, Terrell, Tamara, Tiana, Tessa and Maulakai.

“Our son was our blue eyed golden boy with his cheeky smile that got him away with almost anything with his mum. He was his dad’s right hand man and his best friend.

“He trained hard at Marvin’s Gym (Team Greaves) for a number of years and he well and truly looked up to his trainer with lots of love and respect.

“He was a polite, well respected young man who has touched the lives of many people in Oldham and the love we have felt from the Oldham community has been very heart warming.

“We have to live with this loss for the rest of our lives. It’s left us all as a family truly devastated and our lives will never be the same again.

“Forever in our hearts. Trent, we love you xx.”
