Tributes have been paid to a 'kind' and 'much-loved' restaurant owner who died after a carjacking in Stockport.

Haji Mohammed Hedayatul Islam - known as Nowab Miah - was delivering a takeaway on Friday evening when thieves stole his silver Mercedes.

It's thought he was run over as he tried to stop the vehicle being taken.

Police were called to a report of a collision at the junction of Lyme Grove and Hazel Avenue, in Romiley, just after 9pm.

Mr Miah, 53, from Hyde, Greater Manchester was taken to hospital in critical condition, where he died on Sunday afternoon.

Detectives have launched a murder investigation and a 14-year-old boy, who was arrested on suspicion of robbery, remains in custody.

Mr Miah was the owner of Marple Spice, in Marple, and his son Shaf Nowab posted on the restaurant's Facebook page: 'Verily we belong to Allah, and verily to Him do we return.
