A man who died after being attacked at a former mill was "a vibrant and funny character", his family has said.

Ian Bendall was subjected to a "brutal" attack at Century Mill in Farnworth, Bolton, on 9 June, and died four days later in hospital, police said.

The 43-year-old's family paid tribute to him saying he was "a cheeky chappy who carried a permanent smile".

Four people have been charged with his murder and are due at Manchester Crown Court on 11 August.
