Detectives investigating how a man came to be found in the River Croal are appealing for anyone with information to come forward.

Shortly before 5.45am on Sunday 5 August 2012, police were called to the River Croal near to Back Spa Road North, Bolton.

Emergency services attended and a 40-year-old man was rescued from the water. He was taken to hospital for treatment to serious injuries and remains in a stable condition.

Detective Sergeant Rob Parker said: “We are still investigating how this man came to be injured. Despite our efforts, we are still unable to say for certain what the circumstances may have been. ”

We are therefore unable to rule anything out. “I therefore ask that anyone who was in the area in the early hours of Sunday 5 August to come forward if they feel they may have information that may assist our inquiries.”

Anyone with information is asked to call Bolton CID on 0161 856 5740 or the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
