Pair held on suspicion of murder

Two men have been arrested on suspicion of murder after a man collapsed and died following an incident outside a bar in Manchester city centre.

Police were called to the Pitcher and Piano on Deansgate Locks following reports of a man refusing to leave the area at about 0420 BST.

Officers found the man being restrained at the scene, moments before he collapsed, a police spokesman said.

He was taken to hospital for treatment, but was pronounced dead.

A post-mortem examination will be conducted to establish the exact cause of the man's death.
