A MAN arrested after the death of a 27-year-old man in Whitefield has been released on bail.

Police discovered the man's body at a house in Ripon Avenue shortly after 12.35pm on Wednesday, April 11.

It is believed that the man was involved in an earlier altercation at a property on Rydal Close in Bury before he returned to Ripon Avenue.

A 25-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of manslaughter, but has since been released on bail pending further enquiries.

Police continue to investigate the circumstances surrounding the death.

Detective Inspector John Stainton of GMP’s Bury borough said last week: “We have specially trained officers supporting the man’s family and I want to assure them that we are doing all we can to find out what happened."

Anyone with any information should call police on 101 quoting incident number 950 of 11/04/2018, or the independent charity Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
