A man who orchestrated the shooting of a man outside a Greater Manchester pub has been convicted of his murder.

Kieran McGrath, 26, was shot after leaving the Sheldon Arms pub in Ashton-under-Lyne on 4 October 2014. He drove to a nearby police station but died a short time later.

The jury at Liverpool Crown Court found Anthony Henry, 32, of Kenwyn Street, Miles Platting, guilty of murder.

Jurors are still deliberating on charges against five other people.

A further four men are accused of murder. A fifth defendant faces charges of assisting an offender.

They deny all the charges.

The trial continues.
