A forensic artist's image of a mystery man who was found dead in Saddleworth five months ago has been released worldwide.

Police are still unable to identity the man who was found dead near Dovestone Reservoir in December.

He was captured on CCTV earlier that day arriving from London at Piccadilly Station in Manchester.

A post-mortem found the man had suffered strychnine poisoning. Police suspect the man may have administered the drug himself.

He was found with only a return train ticket and £130 in cash in his possession.

Officers particularly want to circulate the image in Pakistan as they believe the man may have had links to the country.
