The death of a man whose body was found burning in a skip in Manchester was not suspicious, police have said.

The 43-year-old was found in the skip wagon in the car park adjacent to the Apollo Theatre on the A57 Hyde Road in Ardwick, at about 05:30 BST on Monday.

A Greater Manchester Police spokesman said there was "no third party involvement" in his death.

He said an investigation into the cause of his death and how the fire started was taking place.

He added that the man was still yet to be formally identified, though his family had been informed of his death.
