A man has appeared in court charged with conspiring to kidnap and murdering a father-of-four in Lancashire.

Paul Brady, 44, from Rochdale in Greater Manchester, was kidnapped in Bacup in August 2009. He has never been seen since and his remains never found.

Michael Dunphy, 38, of no fixed abode, appeared at Preston Crown Court via a video link from prison.

He is due to appear at the court on 13 June, to enter a plea. A provisional trial date was set for 17 October.

Last month, Paul Devalda, 35, of Padiham Road in Burnley, was found guilty of conspiracy to kidnap and murdering Mr Brady.

He was jailed for life, with a minimum term of 21 years, at Liverpool Crown Court.
