A man has been charged with murder after a grandfather was stabbed in Manchester on his 63rd birthday.

Ujjal Singh died from a knife wound to the neck after he was found in Lidiard Street, Crumpsall, on Monday.

Naunihal Singh, 53, of no fixed address, has been charged with murder and will appear before magistrates later.

A 37-year-old man, also held on suspicion of murder, has been bailed until February.

Mr Singh's family paid tribute to him, praising "his ability to interact with his elders, his peers and also the younger generation".

He leaves behind his wife, four children, nine grandchildren and a great-grandson.
