Two arrested over Trafford pub death

Two men have been arrested in connection with a Trafford murder investigation.

At around 8.30pm on Friday 12 April police were called to reports of a disturbance at the Melville Hotel on Melville Road in Stretford, Trafford.

Gavin Brown, 29, was taken to hospital with serious injuries and died on Saturday 20 April.

Two men – aged 71 and 58 – have now been arrested on suspicion of murder in connection with the case.

Detective Inspector Dave Jones, of GMP’s Trafford district, said: “Today we have brought two men into custody and I hope that this goes far in reassuring Gavin’s family, as well as members of the local community, our absolute commitment to establishing exactly what happened on that tragic night in April.

“I would also like to take this opportunity to say that our thoughts here at GMP are still very much with Gavin and his family while they continue to grieve in what is an unimaginably difficult time.”
