Davyhulme Park: Police Launch Investigation After Two Bodies Found In 'Unexplained Circumstances'

Part of the public space was cordoned off.

The discovery of two bodies in a Manchester park in “unexplained circumstances” has sparked a police probe.

The Manchester Evening News said the bodies were discovered in Davyhulme Park, Trafford, shortly after 8.40am. An area of the park has since been cordoned off while officers carry out an investigation.

Greater Manchester Police confirmed around midday that the bodies  discovered belonged to two men who were both aged in their 50s.

The deaths are not being treated as suspicious.

A spokesman for the North West Ambulance Service confirmed they were called to the park at 8.44am and that two ambulances attended, as well as a senior clinician in a rapid response vehicle.
