BBC North West Tonight chief reporter in Tintwistle

Police were called to the lay-by yesterday afternoon following reports that a walker had found a body. 

When detectives arrived they found the body was badly burned, so badly burned that as yet they are unsure as to whether it is male or female.

Police are asking for anyone who saw anything suspicious in the area to come forward. 

In particular, they are keen to hear from anyone who looked to be starting a fire.
