A MAN’S body has been found in a burning tent just outside of Manchester City Centre.

The Fire Service was called at around 1am on Wednesday morning after calls were made to alert them to a fire underneath a derelict railway bridge next to New Bailey Street car park in Salford.

A GMP spokesperson confirmed that officers arrived at the scene, near Salford Central train station at around 1.20am where they made the discovery of a body within the tent.

It is unknown how the fire started.

The fire service left the scene around 10am and Crime Scene Investigation arrived on the scene shortly after 11am.

An investigation is under way to establish how the fire started but it’s too early to say if there are suspicious circumstances surrounding the death.
