Police in Manchester have arrested two people as part of an investigation into the death of 20-year-old Dylan Crawford from Donegal.

According to the Manchester Evening News, Dylan was discovered in the early hours of Wednesday morning in the Northern Quarter area of the city. 

Two men have now been arrested on suspicion of theft and supplying prohibited drugs. 

An investigation is underway to establish the cause of Dylan's death. 

Paying tribute to Dylan, his family said: 

“Our Dylan was a loving, kind and a very trustworthy individual. He saw the good in everyone and that was his downfall.

“He loved to travel and would give the world to anyone. He was the heart of our family and words can’t describe how devastated we are.

“Our home will never be the same without him. We love you son, brother, cousin and friend. May you rest in peace, darling.”

Detective Inspector Rebecca Boyce of Greater Manchester Police said:

"We are still working to determine the exact circumstances surrounding Dylan’s death.

"This has been a fast-moving investigation and we have now made two arrests, however our investigation continues and we need witnesses to come forward.

We are also looking for anyone who was around the Spear Street, Back Piccadilly Street and Oldham Street area between 11.30pm on Tuesday and 12.30am on Wednesday to come forward."
