Two men charged with murder are to face a retrial after a man was shot outside a pub in Greater Manchester.

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

Three men were convicted of Mr McGrath's murder after a trial at Liverpool Crown Court but the jury was unable to agree over Remi Adams, 34, and Scott Chapman, 27.

A new trial will begin on 4 October.

Mr Adams of Dartmouth Road, Whitefield, and Mr Chapman of Leng Road, Newton Heath, will be tried by a jury at Manchester Crown Court.

They deny murder.

Anthony Henry, 32, Troy Beckford, 24, and Jace Smith, 31, will be sentenced on 17 June after being convicted of the killing.
