THE final moments of a biker, who died in a fatal crash, will air on tonight's episode of BBC's Ambulance to act as a warning to others about the devastating consequences of traffic collisions.

Former policeman Ian Glanister, from Parr, was on his way home from work at Egertons Recovery in Knutsford on Thursday, March 28 2019 when he was involved in the fatal crash.

Ian was riding his motorcycle on Manchester Road when a crash occurred with a car leaving Cottons Hotel at around 6.25pm.

Despite 50 minutes of work by paramedics at the scene, the 29-year-old dad-of-two died.

That day a filming crew for BBC's Ambulance was with the paramedic team which attended to try and save Ian's life.

Now over a year since his death, Ian's widow Leighanne has given them permission to use the footage to raise awareness to "hopefully save other lives".

Leighanne, who moved with their daughter Jennifer, now 6, to Lancaster after Ian's death, said: "The filming crew did get in touch just after Ian died but it was too soon and raw for us all then.

"But now we decided that if it could hopefully save other lives it was worth it.

"Plus they have dedicated this episode to him, which is a lovely gesture."

The footage shows emergency services receiving the 999 call, paramedics rushing to the scene and the immediate aftermath of the crash, including them fighting for 50 minutes to try and save his life at the scene.

Leighanne added: "what happened to Ian could happen to anyone" and that just as "we teach children to look three times before they cross the road" all motorists should be reminded to "look left, right then left again".

"It wasn't easy to decide to put the footage out there, but I know Ian would want to help save others, I know that."

She said that by watching Ian's story "hopefully someone will remember him and it will resonate with them" when they are on the roads.

Ambulance will air tonight Thursday, July 2 on BBC 1 at 9pm.
