A man has been charged after a man and a woman were bitten by dogs in a park in Greater Manchester.

Armed police shot dead two pitbull-type dogs in Queens Park, Bolton on Sunday.

Daniel Hennessy, of Halliwell, Bolton was charged with two counts of allowing dogs to be dangerously out of control, affray and possession of cannabis.

The 39-year-old has appeared before Bolton magistrates and was remanded in custody for a hearing at the town's crown court on 2 May.
