Supt Martin Greenhalgh, said: “We are at the very early stages of trying to establish how this man died.

“At this time we do not know who he is or even whether or not his death is suspicious.

“I would ask the public to bear with us while we conduct our investigation and we will of course issue updates as soon as we know more.”
