Police have named an 80-year-old woman who died after she was knocked down by a black cab in Manchester.

Clarice De-Looze, from Audenshaw, was struck by the taxi as she used a pedestrian crossing in Guide Lane, Audenshaw, on 21 May.

She was taken to hospital with serious injuries to her left leg, head and pelvis, but died the next day.

Police are continuing to appeal for witnesses to the crash, which happened at 1950 BST, to come forward.

Mrs De-Looze's niece, Wendy Edwards, said those close to her were "shocked and upset" by her death.

She said: "Clarice was a fit, healthy, 80-year-old woman who has never been ill and was very active.

"She was an avid churchgoer at Trinity Church on Audenshaw Road, Audenshaw.

"She was a keen gardener, and did a lot of charity work for the Stroke Association and a Alzheimers charity among others.

"Clarice will be dearly missed."
