Officers posted on the GMP Traffic X account: "The driver past a #GMPMotorcycleUnit officer on Woodland Avenue, Gorton with the child standing on the front seat.

"You would be mistaken in thinking that’s a car seat. It is in fact, the back of a pram with a seatbelt wrapped around.

"Driver reported. Utterly ridiculous #fatal4."
