All five members of the family, including three children, were airlifted to hospital with serious injuries.

Shazia suffered multiple injuries including head injuries, internal bleeding, broken jaw and ribs and a fractured leg and was placed in an induced coma.

Qais was discharged from hospital on Friday while his younger brother Bilal suffered a head injury and was kept in Birmingham Children’s hospital along with his sister Haleema who received a fracture in her arm but are said to be doing well.

Abid’s brother Majid told Manchester Evening News: “It’s extremely hard for the family and we are just keeping them all in our prayers.

“We got the first flight home with Uzair after hearing the news. He’s doing OK and the kids are all being cared for under the family umbrella. But we are now just waiting for Abid and Shazia to get better.”
