A 68-year-old man has been found dead at a house in Stockport, prompting a police investigation.

Officers were called to the home in Hexham Close, Offerton, shortly after 13:30 BST on Saturday, following a report of a sudden death.

A 45-year-old woman was arrested in connection with the death and has been bailed.

Post-mortem tests to establish the cause of the man's death have yet to take place.

Det Ch Insp Chris Downey, of Greater Manchester Police, said: "We are in the early stages of our investigation and at present are trying to establish the facts around this man's death.

"I would say there is no imminent threat to the local community.

"We will have officers in the area today and in the coming days and anyone with concerns should speak to us. Likewise if anyone has any information we would be keen to hear from you."
