A second man has been charged over the death of young boy who was killed in a hit-and-run in Manchester in 2003.

Sam Walker, five, was fatally injured in the incident in Chorlton-cum-Hardy.

On Wednesday, Nawnee Mackin, 34, from Chorlton, was charged with causing death by dangerous driving.

Craig Chevelleau, 34, from Longsight, has now been charged with perverting the course of justice. Both will appear at Manchester Magistrates' Court on 5 December.

Greater Manchester Police reopened the investigation into the boy's death in 2012, nine years after he was hit by a car on Hardy Lane.

Sam was walking with his mother, sister and cousin in Chorlton-cum-Hardy at the time.

His mother Jackie Thomson, sister Aimee Walker and cousin Faye Lim were uninjured.
