Four teenagers charged with the murder of a man in Ashton have been remanded in secure accommodation after appearing in court.

A 12-year-old boy, two 16-year-olds and a 17-year-old, who cannot be named for legal reasons, appeared at Oldham Magistrates Court on Monday morning before being transferred to Manchester Crown Court in the afternoon due to the seriousness of the offence.

The 12-year-old has been remanded in the care of local authorities because of his young age and will have a bail application heard on Wednesday.

All four males are expected to enter pleas later this month.

They were earlier charged with the murder of 43-year-old Bradley Moore, who died from serious injuries to his head and abdomen in hospital last Thursday morning following the attack outside the McDonalds restaurant on Warrington Street in the town centre on Wednesday night.

Father-of-four Bradley has been described as a well-liked man by locals and floral tributes are still being left at the scene.

Greater Manchester Police have reminded the public not to link or post the names of any people you think may have been charged on social media.
