Two teenagers have been charged after a bouncer was stabbed outside a nightclub in Oldham in the early hours of Sunday morning.

Police and paramedics were called to Liquid & Envy, on Retiro Street, just after 3am to reports of a stabbing. The doorman, aged 23, was rushed to Manchester Royal Infirmary where he is still recovering, but his incidents are not life-threatening.

A section of Retiro Street outside the club was cordoned off while officers investigated the incident and two people have now been arrested.

18-year-old Shaquille Barry Baxter, who lives in Sale, has been charged with two counts of section 18 assault, while 19-year-old Saskia Custer, of Trafford, was charged with perverting the course of justice.

Both were remanded in custody and due to appear at Tameside Magistrates Court.
