Police officers were flagged down by the woman, who was suffering serious injuries to her neck, at 11.10am.

A room is taped off inside the hotel and an area is cordoned off outside.

Greater Manchester Police said the incident is not believed to be terror related or a “random attack”.

Anthony Hilton, who works at a letting agents close to the hotel, said: “One of our colleagues walked past and saw a lady on the floor with what appeared to be her throat slit.

“There must have been 15 undercover and normal police cars out in the street. Police were running to and fro from the car park and the Hilton Hotel.”

Mr Hilton, 32, said she was “well-dressed” and thought she was in her 30s.
