A woman has admitted killing a man who was hit by a moving tram at Manchester's Victoria station.

Charissa Brown-Wellington, 31, from Oldham, was originally charged with the murder of Philip Carter, 30, who died at the station on 11 June.

Mr Carter was "pushed into a moving tram causing him to fall between the platform and tram", police said.

At a hearing at Manchester Crown Court she admitted manslaughter, which was accepted by the prosecution.

Brown-Wellington was remanded into custody and will be sentenced at the same court on 30 October.

A Metrolink driver reported the collision at about 19:45 BST on 11 June.

The incident caused disruption to services on the Bury line for several hours, affecting those attending the Parklife Music Festival in Heaton Park.
