Dale Cregan On Run After Manchester Blasts...He was already wanted in connection with a murder in May

A manhunt is under way in Manchester following attacks on two homes which left a man dead.

Officers were called to Folkestone Road East in the Clayton area at 10.30am following reports of gunshots, and discovered the body of a 46-year-old man. They believe an explosion had also occurred at the scene.

Nine minutes later, officers received reports of gunshots at a house on Luke Road, Droylsden, where a second explosion is believed to have taken place. No-one was injured during the incident.
