The death of a teenager who was found in an alleyway in Oldham is not being treated as suspicious, Greater Manchester Police have said.

The body of Leon Cudworth, 15, from Oldham was found off Ripponden Road, Moorside, at about 08:00 GMT on Saturday by a passer-by.

A post-mortem examination to establish the cause of death was inconclusive.

Det Ch Insp Phil Reade said: "Sadly his death appears to be the result of a tragic set of circumstances."

He said: "Leon was captured on CCTV leaving friends just after 1am at McDonalds on Huddersfield Road, making his way home.

"He is later seen just before 1.20am on CCTV on Ripponden Road just 300 meters from his home address."

He said officers were waiting for further toxicology tests.
