Greater Manchester Police think he may have been been assaulted in a car park off Wilmslow Road earlier that day.

A 37-year-old man has now been arrested on suspicion of his murder.

He is currently in custody for questioning.

There are still many unanswered questions in this investigation and we won't stop until we answer all of them.

Our thoughts are very much with Noel's family at this difficult time.
