Man lay dead 'for up to a year'
An 81-year-old man found dead in his home could have been there for up to a year, police have said.

George Sutton's body was found in an upstairs room of the house in Cromwell Grove, Levenshulme, Manchester, when police broke in on Christmas Eve.

Neighbours had alerted officers after they became concerned about not having seen him for some time.

Police said the death was not being treated as suspicious and the coroner had been informed.
