One man has died after an 'assault' in the town centre in the early hours of this morning.

Police have set up a police cordon outside Luxe Lounge in Bradshawgate, Bolton town centre, after a man, 34, was found unconscious and later died on the junction of Bradshawgate and Princess Street.

The cordon is still in place this morning, with Crime Scene Investigation officers and officers in forensic suits at the site.

Princess Street which leads to Silverwell Street is also cordoned off preventing motorists and pedestrians from accessing it.

One man told The Bolton News he was in Bradshawgate at the time emergency services arrived, he seemed to think there was some sort of fight where someone may have been seriously hurt.
