A 63-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of murder after the death of a woman in Shaw.
Police found a woman outside of a property on Hillside Avenue with serious injuries.
She was taken to hospital, where despite the best work of medical staff, she was sadly pronounced dead a short time later.
Detective Chief Inspector Stuart Wilkinson, of GMP’s Major Investigation Team, said: “A woman has sadly lost her life tonight and our thoughts remains with her family at this incredibly difficult time.
“This is understandably a distressing incident for local residents, and I would like to reassure the community that although we currently have a man in custody, our investigation is very much still on going and officers at the scene are following all available lines of enquiry to establish the full circumstances surrounding this woman’s tragic death.
“If anyone has any information at all that can help us with our investigation, please get in touch as soon as possible. Even the smallest piece of information could be vital in helping us to complete our enquiries.”
