A man's body has been found in a garden in north Manchester following reports of a burglary.

The body was discovered when police were called to a possible break-in at Deen Wahid Solicitors on Delaunays Road, Crumpsall, in the early hours.

The man was found dead with severe leg injuries in the front garden of a house across the road.

Det Supt Joanne Rawlinson said she was "confident" the man was connected to the break-in.

Two men have been arrested on suspicion of burglary.

"We have only been dealing with this incident for a matter of a few hours, so the investigation is very much in its early stages," she said.
