FOUR people have been arrested in connection with the death of a man who had links to Bradford.

The body of Craig Wilcox, of Failsworth, Manchester, was found at a beauty spot near Oldham in February this year.

The 28-year-old, who had last been seen the previous month at the home of relatives near Manchester, was found in a reservoir on the edge of Saddleworth Moor.

Shortly before Mr Wilcox's body was found, police issued a missing person appeal and said that he could be in Bradford.

Now, two men aged 53 and 29 have been arrested on suspicion of murder and production of cannabis. A 25-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to murder and production of cannabis and a 52-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of production of cannabis.

They are all from the Greater Manchester area and have all been released on bail pending further enquiries.

Detective Chief Inspector Terry Crompton, of Greater Manchester Police, said: "Although we have made four arrests in connection with Craig's death, we are still appealing for the public's help to tell us what happened to him before he died."

People with information should call police on 0161 856 4711, or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
