A woman has been arrested after a man's body was found at a house, Greater Manchester Police said.

Officers said they received reports about midday on Saturday that a man had died at a property on Bradford Road in Miles Platting.

A 55-year-old woman has been arrested on suspicion of murder and remains in custody for questioning.

A post-mortem investigation is due to take place and police appealed for information.
