A second man has been arrested after a fatal attack in Abram.

A 22-year-old man was arrested yesterday afternoon (Tuesday 8 January 2019) on suspicion of murder.

This is in relation to an assault that took place on Bickershaw Lane on Friday 28 December 2018. 21-year-old Billy Livesley, from Platt Bridge, suffered serious injuries as a result of the assault and was taken to hospital in a critical condition.

He sadly died the following evening and a Home Office Post Mortem confirmed that the cause of death was a significant head injury.
