POLICE are appealing for witnesses after a young Neston woman died in a car crash.

The accident happened on Chester Road, Huntington, one-and-a-half miles south of the Rake & Pikel pub, around 4am on Wednesday (October 22).
A Cheshire Constabulary spokeswoman said: “An 18-year-old male has been arrested on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving.
