A man has been arrested after a 19-year-old woman was raped.

The assault, which took place on Wednesday, led to a part of Bolton town centre being cordoned off but Greater Manchester Police said the area was "no longer forming part of our enquiries".

Officers said they were now concentrating on a property in Atherton.

Det Ch Insp Chris Bridge added: "We have a 27-year-old man in custody and he is currently being questioned".
