A murder investigation was launched after a man was stabbed in Eccles.

On Monday 29 August 2016, shortly before 11.40pm, police were called to a report of fighting on Cambrai Street in Winton, Eccles.

“We believe there will be lots of witnesses to this incident. I appeal to anyone who saw what happened and anyone who saw the events before or after it to contact police.
