Manchester police killings: Dale Cregan 'was on bail'

A man suspected of killing two female police officers in Greater Manchester had been arrested three months ago over a fatal pub shooting, it has emerged.

PC Nicola Hughes, 23, and PC Fiona Bone, 32, were killed in a gun and grenade attack after being called to investigate a report of a burglary.

Dale Cregan is being held on suspicion of their murders and two others.

In June, Mr Cregan, 29, was questioned over the shooting of Mark Short in Manchester and released on bail.
