    A woman has been found dead in a flat in Manchester after reports of a man jumping from a second storey window.

    The man reportedly jumped from a building in Swan Street, Ancoats, before “a number of people” were assaulted at about 07:40 GMT, police said.

    Police later entered a flat and found the body of a woman.

    A 37-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of murder and remains in custody for questioning.

    Supt Chris Hill said: “We are currently working to establish the exact circumstances surrounding what has happened this morning and the woman’s death.”
