A 32 -year-old man who was arrested on suspicion of murder in Hyde on Wednesday (28/6/17) has been released from custody on police bail.

The man was arrested following the death of a 40 -year-old man whose body was discovered by an ambulance crew attending a flat  on Harbour Farm Road, Newton, Hyde, at around 6.00pm on Wednesday evening.
