Saddleworth Moor death man 'on plane crash pilgrimage'

An elderly man who died on Saddleworth Moor could have been making a final journey to the site of a plane crash which killed his family, police said.

Six weeks after his death, detectives are yet to identify the man who had travelled more than 200 miles to the moor.

Greater Manchester Police are investigating whether he could be linked to an air accident that killed 24 people in 1949.

Anyone with information is asked to contact police or Crimestoppers.
