“Three foren­sic of­fi­cers kept go­ing in and out of the flat, while po­lice waited out­side.”

Of­fi­cers were first called to the ad­dress by con­cerned neigh­bours at about 3pm.

A GMP spokes­woman said: “A body was found in a flat on Vic­to­ria Park on Wed­nes­day af­ter­noon.

“His death is be­ing treated as non­sus­pi­cious.

“En­quiries are on­go­ing to es­tab­lish who his next-of-kin are.”

Any­one with fur­ther in­for­ma­tion is asked to call po­lice on 101.
