A teenage girl has been charged with perverting the course of justice after police investigated a rape in Greater Manchester.

Officers were called to a house in Great Lever, Bolton, on 8 January when a 17-year-old girl reported being raped by a taxi driver.

A 34-year-old man was arrested but later released without charge, a police spokesman said.

The teenager is due before Bolton magistrates on 1 June.
