Formal identification and a post-mortem examination are yet to take place.

Supt Dave Pester asked people in the community to come forward with information, adding: "I urge you to tell us what you know. A family has lost their son and we need your help to stop this from happening again."

Police will remain in the Moss Side area, he added.
