Manchester Evening News was told by a resident that the girl who saw them lying in the street had brought dressing gowns for their comfort until the emergency service arrived.

According to the woman who didn’t want to be identified, she said that there were two girls. She opened her window and heard another crash. My neighbour shouted at me to get outside. He said there was a girl being knocked over, so I ran out.

“One of the horses was knocked over, and it was being repaired outside my mine.

‘I gave them both my dress gowns to keep warm because they didn’t have any family nearby. I also wanted to care for them as their parents couldn’t.

“She was standing near the bus station on her right side. She was accompanied by the girl on the left. Her sister was lying on the ground in the middle of the night. But we were able to find her. I called for help.
