Greater Manchester Police's chief constable has pleaded not guilty to health and safety breaches after a man was shot dead by one of his officers.

Sir Peter Fahy faced a charge of failing to discharge a duty under the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 at Liverpool Crown Court.

The charge follows the shooting of Anthony Grainger in Cheshire in March 2012.

The case was adjourned for a pre-trial review in December.
