A man has been arrested on suspicion of murder after the death of a man who was assaulted at a former mill.

Officers said a 43-year-old had been picked up in a car and driven to Century Mill in Farnworth, Bolton at about 12:00 BST on Friday.

He was attacked by a group of men, police said, before being returned to Masefield Drive with serious injuries. He died four days later in hospital.

A 28-year-old man remains in custody for questioning.

Det Insp Cheryl Hughes, from Greater Manchester Police, appealed for information, adding: "We are determined to bring these violent criminals to justice.

"This incident happened in broad daylight - the offenders picked the victim up and then returned him with serious injuries to a residential area - so someone must have seen something."
