Two brothers have been charged with the murder of a man who was found decapitated and burnt in Stockport.

The body of John Grainger, 32, was found by fire crews tackling a blaze in Wellington Street at 05:10 GMT on Thursday. His head was found nearby.

A post-mortem examination found Mr Grainger died from a shotgun wound to the head and another head injury.

Anthony Jenkins, 31, and Joseph Jenkins, 29, both of Covent Gardens, Stockport are accused of his murder.

They will appear at Stockport Magistrates Court on Saturday.

Mr Grainger's body was found on a verge opposite the Gala Casino, not far from the town's Magistrates' Court.

His family said: "John was a cheeky and loveable character who was a fantastic brother and uncle to his niece and nephews.

"He wanted to become a dad one day and was looking forward to what the future held."
