The son of a couple found shot dead in their home in Sale is being questioned on suspicion of murder.

Officers were called to Clough Avenue in Sale following a concern for welfare call. Police found the bodies of Bob Seddon, 68, and his wife Patricia, 65, on Friday.

Their son Nic Seddon , 45, was arrested the following day at his home in Seaham, County Durham.

Greater Manchester Police said it was conducting a "dynamic, fast-paced investigation" into the double shooting.

Four months ago Mr and Mrs Seddon managed to escape death when a car driven by their son plunged into Bridgewater Canal in Timperley.

Father-of-three Nic Seddon said he smashed his window to escape himself and then helped pull his

16-year-old nephew to safety before going back got his father.

Fire crews rescued them both, then saved the life of Mrs Seddon.
