AN appeal has been launched to raise funds for the funeral of a “popular” 24-year-old man who has died.

Jordan Brown died after a crash on Wigan Road in Leigh at the junction with Hulme Road just before 6.40pm on Monday night, where the black Honda motorbike he was riding collided with a white Renault Megane.

Emergency services were called to the scene and Jordan was taken to hospital with life-threatening injuries.

He died on Wednesday.

A JustGiving crowdfunding page has been set up to help his family with the funeral costs.

A message on the page states: “We know Jordan was a loved and popular young man and we ask kindly for people to support the funds needed to celebrate his life properly.”

Police are continuing to appeal for information. Two women – aged 42 and 64 – who were in the Renault were also taken to hospital.
