It was found in an area known as Victoria Fields which is used by dog walkers and horse riders. Police sealed off a large area of land north of Bickershaw Lane near Hindley Prison as forensics officers scoured the area for clues. Officers are trawling a list of missing people in a bid to identify the body.
