A man and 17-year-old boy who were arrested on suspicion of murder have been charged in connection with a pub fight in which a man died.

Joe O'Brien, 24, died in the fracas outside the Royal Oak Hotel pub in Failsworth, Manchester on Sunday.

The pair are accused of wounding with intent and violent disorder.

Greater Manchester Police said the 21-year-old's knife injuries are not thought to be life-threatening.
