A further two people have been arrested in connection with a man’s death in a Pennine reservoir.

Both were arrested this morning by detectives investigating the murder of Craig Wilcox.

He was found dead on February 24 in Dovestone Reservoir - a beauty spot off the Greenfield Road at Saddleworth. It is popular with many Huddersfield families.

A post mortem examination was carried out, but the result was inconclusive.

Craig was last seen on January 6, 2014 at the home of relatives on Norfolk Crescent in Failsworth.

A missing from home investigation was launched by detectives in Oldham which established Craig had confided in a friend to say he feared for his safety.
