A 45-year-old man from County Durham has been charged with murdering his parents in Greater Manchester.

Stephen Seddon, of Benevente Street, Seaham, is accused of murdering Bob, 68, and Patricia, 65, at their home in Clough Avenue, Sale.

The couple were shot dead, a post-mortem examination confirmed.

Mr Seddon, who is also known as Nic, is further charged with their attempted murder, after a car with all three inside plunged into a canal in March.

He will appear before Manchester Magistrates' Court on Friday.

Mr and Mrs Seddon were discovered dead at their home on 6 July.

They were rescued from the canal in Timperley on 20 March.
