    Families pay tribute to ‘soulmates’ killed by car outside hospital

    Families pay tribute to ‘soulmates’ killed by car outside hospital

    Tributes have been paid to two women who were tragically killed in a collision outside a Manchester hospital.

    Pair died soon after incident

    Clare Haslam, 44, and Deborah Clifton, 49, died after a green Ford Focus ploughed into a group of pedestrians outside Withington Community Hospital on Tuesday, March 7.

    Both were pronounced dead in hospital shortly after the collision and an 89-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of two counts of causing deaths by dangerous driving,

    Sergeant Lee Westhead of Greater Manchester Police said: “My thoughts are with the families of Clare and Debbie, I cannot begin to imagine what they are going through.”


    Relatives have paid tribute to the “inseparable” pair, saying the families are heartbroken at the tragic loss, adding they “will miss Debbie and Clare every day for the rest of our lives”.

    The families’ joint statement said: “Clare and Debbie were like an old married couple, they would fight like cat and dog, bicker at the slightest thing but ultimately they were made for each other, so blissfully happy and without doubt soulmates.”

    The couple lived on Thorneycroft Avenue in Chorlton and had a young daughter.

    Their relatives said: “They are together in heaven as they were on earth.”

    Sergeant Westhead added: “Our investigation is now under way and I would like to thank the public who have been incredibly helpful. We are now doing all that we can to piece together how this tragedy could have happened.”

    The suspect, who has yet to be named by police, has been bailed until April 18.
