TWO men have been arrested on suspicion on murder after a 29-year-old man died following a disturbance at a pub.

On April 12 police were called to reports of a disturbance at the Melville Hotel in Melville Road, Stretford, in which a man, Gavin Brown, suffered serious injuries.

The 29-year-old was taken to hospital but died on April 20.

This morning, two men, aged 71 and 58, were arrested on suspicion of murder and remain in custody to be questioned by detectives today.

Detective Inspector Dave Jones, of Greater Manchester Police’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.”
