A cyclist who died after a crash with a car on a busy Manchester road was "well-loved" and had "a wicked sense of humour" her family has said.

Jaye Bloomfield, 44, died in a collision with a black Seat Leon on the slip road from Princess Road to Mancunian Way on Saturday afternoon.

She was pronounced dead at the scene.

A 40-year-old man, arrested on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving, has been bailed pending further enquiries, police said.

Ms Bloomfield had been a regular rider for two years and loved cycling, her family said.

"The family take some comfort from the fact that Jaye died doing something that she enjoyed," they said.
