Pair held over Oldham 'attempted murder' no longer suspects

A man and woman held on suspicion of attempted murder have been "de-arrested", police have said.

The pair had been arrested after a man was hit by a bus and a woman admitted to hospital with stab wounds in Oldham on Monday.

Greater Manchester Police later said the pair were "de-arrested" with no record left on police files.

It is understood the pair are now being treated as witnesses. The injured man and woman are described as stable.

Police were called to Henshaw Street in Oldham shortly after 19:00 BST on Monday following reports a man was in the road. He had been hit by a bus.

Officers were then called a short time later to Royal Oldham Hospital, following reports a woman had been admitted with stab wounds.

It is thought the two incidents are linked.

As part of the investigation police are also treating a house on Medina Grove, Coldhurst, as a crime scene.
