Charges over Rochdale malnourished girl

A man and a woman have been charged after a 10-year-old girl was found severely malnourished and dehydrated.

An investigation began in April when the girl was admitted to hospital with severe malnutrition, a distended abdomen and chronic ulcers.

Grant Buckley, 32, and Sarah Attwood, 29, of Roch Valley Way, Rochdale, are accused of causing or allowing a child to suffer serious physical harm.

They are due to appear at Bury Magistrates' Court on 24 August.
