A man who was arrested following a woman's death has been released after Greater Manchester Police said they no longer believed it was suspicious.

Officers were called on Saturday after she was found unresponsive at a house on Maple Crescent in Leigh, Wigan.

The woman, believed to be in her 20s, was later pronounced dead at the scene.

A man was held on suspicion of murder but released under investigation after a post-mortem test "proved there were no suspicious circumstances", GMP said.
