Police are investigating following the death of a man.

Police were called to a house on Richmond Drive, Leigh by the ambulance service at about 12.55pm on September 19.

Officers attended and the body of a man was found. He has been identified as Kieran Large, 25.

A Home Office post-mortem examination has now been carried out which concluded Kieran died of internal injuries and his death is now being treated as suspicious.

A 30-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of murder and remains in police custody for questioning.

Police are now appealing for witnesses and are particularly keen to trace any of Kieran's family.

Detective Inspector Ian Fields said: "A Home Office post-mortem examination has revealed that Kieran died of injuries consistent with an attack, so it is important we establish everything that happened to Kieran in the days and weeks leading up to his death.

"I would appeal to anyone who has information that could assist our investigation to come forward.

"We are also actively trying to find Kieran's family and I would ask that if anyone is reading this appeal and if you knew Kieran, or are a family member who has not seen him for some time, that you call us.

"At this stage, we do not have many details about his family, but Kieran is someone's son and we need to speak to his family so we can talk to them about his sad death and also build up a picture of who he was."

Anyone with information is asked to call the police on 0161 872 5050 or the independent charity Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
