Three people have been arrested on suspicion of murder after a man was stabbed.

Paramedics found an unresponsive man in his 30s, who had a wound to the stomach, in Leigh, Greater Manchester, at about 23:45 GMT on Saturday.

He was pronounced dead at the property on Platt Street.

Two men, aged 44 and 48, and a 22-year-old woman have been detained on suspicion of murder and remain in custody.
