Detective Superintendent Joanne Rawlinson said:

"At this stage we are working to establish the full circumstances that led to this man sadly losing his life. We know there was an altercation that took place in the street so we would ask if anyone saw the disturbance or has any information that may help with our investigation that they contact police and tell us what they know.

"We appreciate the community will be concerned so I want to reassure them that this is an isolated incident and there is no wider threat to the community.

"We have cordoned off the street while we carry out our investigations and we will have an increased police presence in the area over the coming days. We would urge anyone with information or any concerns to speak to us."

A man terrified staff and customers at a McDonalds in Stockport after walking in with a knife.

Wearing a balaclava he walked up to the counter at the store on Sandy Lane with a 10inch knife and demanded cash from the tills and safe. The man then ran off in the direction of Clarendon Street. It happened at around 8:30pm on Friday (Oct 2nd).

“Fortunately no-one was hurt in the robbery, but the staff were understandably terrified to be confronted by a man armed with a knife.

“I am keen to speak to anyone who saw the man enter or leave the shop, or who has any information about the incident, to contact police.”
