Body found near Manchester United’s Old Trafford stadium as huge area sealed off | UK | News

Police were protecting a cordon that was erected around the Barton Road Swing Bridge area between the borders of Salford and Trafford.

Reports from the Manchester Evening News said a body was recovered and subsequently taken away by a private ambulance.

The scene was blocking a footpath along the area around the bridge.

Police can be seen standing on both sides of the bridge. It appears the cordon has been been in place throughout Saturday and cops have since left the scene.

So far the nature of the incident has not been confirmed by Greater Manchester Police.

The bridge is only about four miles from Manchester United’s famous Old Trafford stadium. The club are due to play Liverpool tomorrow at home, so police will be keen to re-open the area well in advance of the game.
