A 20-year-old woman has been arrested on suspicion of murder following the death of a woman in Greater Manchester.

The body of the 30-year-old woman was discovered by police at an address on Bamford Street in Chadderton, Oldham, on Friday morning.

A police spokesman said she had been found with "serious injuries to her neck".

Results of a post-mortem examination to establish the cause of her death are due later.

Supt Catherine Hankinson said Greater Manchester Police were "doing all we can to establish the exact circumstances leading up to her death to provide some much-needed answers for her family".

"A young woman has tragically had her life taken from her [and] the team of detectives dedicated to investigating this woman's death are currently following a number of lines of inquiry," she said.

She added that officers did not believe there were "any immediate concerns for the safety of the wider community" but said extra patrols would remain in the area to provide reassurance.
