Sadly, the driver of the BMW, a 61-year-old man from Northwich, was pronounced dead at the scene. His next of kin have been informed and are being supported by specialist officers.

A passenger from the BMW, a 48-year-old man from Chester, and the driver of the van, a 70-year-old man from Chester, also sustained serious injuries.
