Tributes to boy, 16, killed as car being chased by cops crashes into wall in Manchester

TRIBUTES have flooded in for a 16-year-old boy killed when a car being pursued by cops crashed into a wall in Greater Manchester.

The teen, named locally as Shae Marlow, is understood to have been driving the VW Golf when the horror unfolded in Stalybridge last night.

Greater Manchester Police (GMP) said officers were called to a report of an attempted burglary shortly after 6pm.

They then followed the car as it crashed into a wall a short time after the chase ensued.

Shae was declared dead at the scene, while another 16-year-old boy was taken to hospital in a serious condition.

Tributes have now been paid to Shae, with flowers left at the scene of the crash.

One relative, who laid flowers at the scene, told the M.E.N: "He was a
very popular lad.

"He was well-known around here. His mum and dad are in bits, he was really loyal."

A friend wrote on Facebook: "RIP Shae Marlow such a young polite boy
always said hi with a cheeky smile on his face my heart is with his family.

"Devastating RIP young boy shine bright up there in heaven."

Another said: "Heartbroken over the news. RIP Shae Marlow one of the
most kindhearted boys I knew. Sending my love to everyone."

While one wrote: "RIP Shae. Never failed to put a smile on my face will love and miss you brother. Rest easy kid."

A GoFundMe page has been set up by a close friend of Shae to raise
money for his funeral, and has raised nearly £2,000.

Police said inquiries are continuing and a cordon is in place while an investigation takes place.

GMP confirmed the incident has been referred to its Professional Standards Branch and the IOPC in line with standard procedure.

Anyone with information is asked to call 101 quoting incident number 2146 of 03/11/20.
