A murder investigation is under way after a 19-year-old man was stabbed to death in Oldham, police have said.

Officers were called to a street fight and the victim was taken to hospital but pronounced dead shortly afterwards.

He was stabbed in the early hours of yesterday, Greater Manchester Police said. Three men, two aged 21 and a 20-year-old, were arrested on suspicion of murder and investigators are appealing to anyone with information to come forward.

Police were initially called shortly before 4.30am to reports of a stabbing after a fight involving a small group of men.

Detective Superintendent Debbie Dooley said: "My thoughts are with the young man who has had his life brutally taken away from him and our specialist officers are working closely with the family to assist them the best we can at this devastating time."
