A 38-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of murder after a woman was stabbed to death in Salford.

Police were called to a house on Cumbrae Gardens, Weaste, at about 18:40 BST on Tuesday to reports a woman had received serious injuries.

Officers discovered a 32-year-old woman with stab wounds. She was pronounced dead at the scene.

A man at the scene also suffered serious stab injuries to his arm. He is in a stable condition in hospital.

The arrested man remains in police custody for questioning.

A post-mortem examination will take place later today to establish the cause of the woman's death.

Det Chief Insp Ben Ewart, of Salford CID, said: "We want to reassure everyone that we believe this to be an entirely isolated incident and there is no wider threat to the community.

"We have got extra patrols in the Weaste area and I would urge anyone with concerns to approach any of our officers.

"I would also like to take this opportunity to appeal to anyone who saw or heard anything unusual on Cumbrae Gardens yesterday, or previously, to get in touch with detectives."

  • Bristol Academy extends reach overseas with first foreign students

    With the doors to its brand new £1million training centre officially open, one of the UK's leading apprentice training providers, Bristol based S&B Automotive Academy, is showcasing its world-class facilities by launching a series of foreign student exchanges for the first time in its 41-year history. To get a flavour of what life is like as an apprentice in the UK, the Academy hosted 16 apprentice engineers and bus drivers from the G9 Automotive College in Hamburg, Germany, as part of a Europe-wide vocational training initiative called the ‘Leonardo Programme’ with support from the European Social Fund. In a reciprocal arrangement, S&B will be sending nine apprentices to Germany during February 2012 so that they can get an appreciation of life in the automotive industry on the Continent. A further three German exchange groups are being planned for next year. Designed to assist the development of vocational skills and training across Europe, including work placements for trainees, the Leonardo Programme has a budget of €1.75bn, which is helping to encourage UK organisations to work with their counterparts abroad. In what is expected to be another challenging year for employers in the UK automotive sector, S&B’s Chief Executive, Jon Winter, claims that the exchange initiative will bring many benefits to the Academy and its apprentices: “In a world of global automotive brands, it’s important for our learners to understand the international context of the industry they have chosen to make their career. This new exchange programme will enable apprentices and Academy staff alike to achieve a better understanding of the challenges and opportunities within the automotive arena in Europe. With the Academy’s influence also extending to the USA and Asia, there’s every possibility that this initiative could move further afield in the future.” Continued Winter: “The need for skilled technicians across the world is on the increase and we actively encourage our apprentices to look at broader horizons during their training. Many of them have already learned the phrase ‘Vorsprung durch Gelehrtheit’, quite simply, ‘Advancement through learning.” In the 2010/11 academic year, S&B doubled the number of successful Apprenticeships over the previous year with some 350 apprentices graduating from the Academy. At the same time, achievement levels reached an all-time high with an overall success rate of 85%. For those learners on the Advanced Apprenticeship three-year programme, success rates were even higher, at over 98%.
