Salford University, where the body of a 30-year-old man was found.

“We have now launched a murder investigation and a team of detectives will be speaking to witnesses over the coming hours and days. As part of that I want to appeal to anyone who might have information that could help us – please come forward and speak to my officers.

“I can’t speculate on the motive for this crime, but at this early stage there is nothing to suggest there is a threat to the wider student population.”

“We already have a strong working relationship with the university and we will be working closely with them in the coming days.”

The victim, who has not yet been formally identified, will undergo a post-mortem examination on Tuesday to establish the cause of death.
