Three people have been arrested on suspicion of murder after a man's body was found in a house in Bolton.

Marc Jepson, 40, was discovered in the living room of the property in Kildare Street, Farnworth, on 5 March.

A post-mortem examination found he had died as a result of asphyxiation, Greater Manchester Police said.

A 41-year-old woman was arrested earlier after the arrests of a 27-year-old man and a 63-year-old woman on Sunday. All three are from Farnworth.
