TWO men have been arrested after the body of a woman was found in Wigan.
At 10.45am this morning (Monday), police were called by an ambulance staff to Plane Avenue, Worsley Hall. Officers attended and discovered the body of a 44-year-old woman.
A 37-year-old man and a 46-year-old man were arrested on suspicion of murder and they remain in police custody for questioning.
Detective Inspector Matthew Moore said: “We have launched an investigation into the woman’s death but at this moment, are unable to say how she has died until a post mortem has been completed. We are now in the process of finding her family and telling them the tragic news.
“The investigation is at a very early stage and if anyone has any information as to what happened, I would ask you to come forward and speak to us.”
