Man Found Dead After Solicitors' Firm Burglary

Detectives are investigating the death of a man whose body was discovered in a garden in Greater Manchester.

Police found him after being called to reports of a burglary at a firm of solicitors in Delaunays Road, Crumpsall, at around 4am on Sunday.

The man had a severe leg injury and officers are trying to establish whether he was involved in the break-in.

A post-mortem will take place later.

Two other men have been arrested on suspicion of burglary and remain in custody.

Detective Superintendent Joanne Rawlinson, from Greater Manchester Police, said: "I am confident this man is in some way connected to a possible break-in at the solicitors.

"Detectives are working to establish how this man came by his injuries."
