Two men have been charged with murdering a man at a Rochdale nightclub in the early hours of Christmas Day.

John Lee Barrett, 31, died from a stab wound to his back at Sinclair's Bar on Drake Street.

Three men aged 18, 22 and 23 have also been arrested on suspicion of murder. Eight men were charged in connection with Mr Barrett's death last week.

The two charged men are due to appear at Manchester City Magistrates' Court on Wednesday.

Tremaine Lee, 48, of Yeovil Street, Moss Side and Derico Smith, 20, of Brentnor Road, New Moston are charged with murder, violent disorder and causing grievous bodily harm.

Last Thursday police carried out raids at properties across Greater Manchester.
