"These are the very early stages of what is now a murder investigation, and a team of detectives are working tirelessly to piece together information and evidence. We will be following-up a number of different lines of enquiry we have to ensure those responsible are brought to justice."

“Officers from the Salford district will be providing a visible presence in the coming days for reassurance and we would like to thank the local community for their cooperation and patience so far.”
