A man has been stabbed to death in a "particularly violent incident" in Manchester, police have said.

It happened in Royal Oak Road in Wythenshawe at about 17:00 BST on Tuesday, Greater Manchester Police (GMP) said.

The force has launched a murder investigation.

Det Ch Insp Stuart Wilkinson appealed for anyone who witnessed the attack or who has information to contact GMP.

He said the stabbing happened near a busy junction, so it was "highly likely that members of the public who were leaving work, commuting or arriving home saw or heard something of significance".
