Chief Superintendent Emily Higham from GMP’s major incident team said: ‘What we were faced with during the early hours of this morning was a large group of men and women fighting in the street.

‘Sadly, a 21-year-old man has lost his life, my thoughts go out to his family at this unimaginably painful time.

‘We are appealing for anyone who witnessed the fighting to get in touch as soon as possible. We believe the fighting started in the Suburbia nightclub and spilled out onto the road, so there is potentially a nightclub full of witnesses who we want to hear from.

‘There is currently a scene in place and some road closures in the area.

‘I am asking anyone who has any information or concerns to get in touch with police as a matter of urgency. The level of violence people were using towards each other and police was shocking and this resulted in the tragic loss of a young man’s life. We cannot let those responsible get away with this.’
