POLICE searching for a missing man from Bury have said they have found a body.

Officers have been searching for missing John Woodman, 56, since he was last seen on May 22.

Mr Woodman's car had been found near the Wayoh reservoir, outside the Black Bull Inn in Edgworth.

He had also left his mobile phone and bank card at home, with police saying that they were becoming increasingly concerned for John's welfare.

Divers and search teams were present at the reservoir for several days amid the search.

They were joined at Wayoh Reservoir in Edgworth by Greater Manchester Police, Lancashire Police and the North West Police Underwater Search and Marine Unit.

They added that formal identification has not yet taken place but there are not believed to be any suspicious circumstances surrounding the death.
