Two women have been arrested on suspicion of murder after emergency services discovered a man dead at an Oldham house in the early hours of this morning.
Police were called to Littlemoor Lane in the north of the town at around 1am after receiving a report that a 55-year-old man had suffered an injury.
Two women aged 34 and 54 were later arrested on suspicion of murder and are currently in police custody for questioning.
Detective Superintendent Tony Creely said: “I want to offer reassurance to the community that we have made quick arrests following this man’s death and, at this stage, we are not currently looking for anyone else in connection with this incident.”
The incident is believed to be domestic-related, but a post mortem examination will be carried out to establish the cause of death.
Anyone with information is advised to call police on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
