A 47-year-old man found dead at a Manchester school could have been a homeless person using a drop-in centre at the premises, police said.

The body of the man, who has not been named, was found at the King of Kings school on Dantzic Street, Collyhurst, on Monday morning.

Greater Manchester Police said further tests are being carried out after an inconclusive post-mortem examination.

Seven volunteers and 61 homeless people were in the building on Sunday.

Police have identified the man but have not released the name to the public.

Detectives are treating the death as suspicious and the possibility that the man was a user of the drop-in centre is one of their lines of inquiry.

Ch Supt Russ Jackson said: "I would appeal to those who were in the building on Sunday 17 June and may have witnessed something suspicious or saw a man having medical difficulties, to contact police.

"The information you have, no matter how small or insignificant you may feel it is, could help us determine what led up to this man's death."
