Two men arrested in connection with the murder of Gavin Brown in Trafford.

Two men, aged 71 and 58, have today (Tuesday 21 May 2019) been arrested on suspicion of murder.

They remain in custody and will be questioned by detectives later today.

At around 8.30pm on Friday 12 April 2019 police were called to reports of a disturbance at the Melville Hotel on Melville Road in Stretford, Trafford.

Emergency services attended and 29-year-old Gavin Brown was taken to hospital with serious injuries. Sadly he died on Saturday 20 April 2019.

Detective Inspector Dave Jones, of GMP’s Trafford district, said:

Today we have brought two men into custody and I hope that this goes far in reassuring Gavin’s family, as well as members of the local community, our absolute commitment to establishing exactly what happened on that tragic night in April.

I would also like to take this opportunity to say that our thoughts here at GMP are still very much with Gavin and his family while they continue to grieve in what is an unimaginably difficult time.
