A boy has been charged with manslaughter after the death of a man who was allegedly punched in the face at a railway station.

The alleged attack was in Glossop, Derbyshire, on Saturday evening.

Kenneth Stott, 63, from Hyde, Greater Manchester, was taken to Tameside Hospital but died on Sunday.

A 16-year-old, from Hadfield, was granted bail at Chesterfield Magistrates and will appear again at Buxton Magistrates Court on 26 April.

A 58-year-old man and a 46-year-old woman, arrested in London on Monday on suspicion of assisting an offender, have been released on police bail.

The cause of Mr Stott's death is not yet known and further tests will be carried out, a spokeswoman from Chesterfield Coroner's Office said.

An inquest into Mr Stott's death has been opened and adjourned.
