A man has been arrested as part of a fraud investigation involving the theft of more than £120,000 from a school in Greater Manchester.

Police are investigating the theft of £121,800 from Wentworth High School in Eccles, Salford, between 2007 and 2010.

A spokeswoman said a 41-year-old man had been arrested on suspicion of fraud and bailed until 20 March pending further enquiries.

Salford City Council said it was co-operating with police on the matter.

It said in a statement: "Salford City Council is supporting the police investigation into this matter.

"As this is an ongoing investigation it would be inappropriate to comment further at this stage."
