Music and laughter can be heard, and young Usman is shown with a big grin on his face, while his father can be seen at the wheel of the car.

The clip seen here only shows Adnan, out of respect to the other family, who have asked for their privacy to be respected at this time.

Adnan's family, who described him as a devoted father and husband, who would ‘add sparkle’ to the lives of everyone he met, said it was ‘surreal’ watching those last moments knowing what was to happen.

They told how he had been incredibly proud of his boys and loved sharing photos and videos of them.

The collision happened on Main Road, near the junction with Bannham Road, just after 8.50pm.

Three men travelling in the Golf, aged 17, 18 and 23 were arrested on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving. All three, who sustained minor injuries, remain in police custody.

Because police had been pursuing the Golf, a mandatory referral has been made to Independent Office for Police Conduct, which is investigating the events leading up to the crash.

Temporary Detective Chief Inspector Jude Ashmore, who is leading the investigation, today said: “We are continuing to support both families and we have specially trained officers with them. My thoughts are with them and I’d ask that people continue to respect their privacy as they try to digest what’s happened.

“Our investigation into the collision continues and the road closure around Main Road was lifted last night and the two vehicles removed. I’d like to thank everyone for their continued support, cooperation and patience.

“Officers have remained in the area today and will be there into the evening and tomorrow. I’d urge anyone who saw what happened to speak to them, you may have important information and officers can also offer and direct to any necessary support if you need it.

“We remain keen to hear from anyone who saw what happened, or who may have footage of the collision. If you have information that could assist with the investigation, please call 101 quoting incident number 741 of November 9. You can also speak to Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.”
