Two teenage boys have been arrested after a 21-year-old man was found dead at a property in Manchester.

The man was found with serious injuries at an address on Kings Road, Old Trafford, after police were called at around 7.45pm on Wednesday.

He was pronounced dead at the scene.

A 15-year-old boy was arrested on suspicion of murder, while a 16-year-old was held on suspicion of possession of an offensive weapon in the nearby area.

Additional police officers have been sent to the Old Trafford area following the death.

Detective Superintendent Jane Higham said: “Firstly, my thoughts are with the victim’s family and friends at this time. Officers have been deployed to support them.

“We are in the very early stages of a murder investigation and a team of experienced officers will be working throughout the night and over the coming days to understand a timeline of events that will help us piece together what has happened this evening.”
