A man who died after an alleged assault outside a McDonald's restaurant may have been hit by a car, police say.

Father-of-four Bradley Moore, 43, died in hospital after being found with serious injuries in Warrington Street, Ashton-under-Lyne, on 27 July.

Four boys - aged 12, 16, 16 and 17 - have appeared in court charged with murder.

A 44-year-old man has also been arrested on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving.

The 12-year-old boy was granted bail at Manchester Crown Court on Wednesday.

The youngster, who cannot be named for legal reasons, was not at the short hearing.

The next hearing will be at the same court on August 15.

They are due to stand trial on 16 January.
