Air Jordan 19s Both brothers
Kurshid’s brother Asad, 24, who owned the powerful Volvo S60 involved in the collision, was given an eight month sentence, suspended for two years, after he pleaded guilty to perverting the course of justice.
The court heard that he created a fake receipt claiming the car had been sold when he heard what had happened.

Mr Barr said another witness Air Jordan 14s saw Kurshid and a girlfriend getting out of the vehicle after he abandoned it near the Bolton School. He said the witness saw them ‘laughing and giggling’.
