Two men charged with murder after a man was stabbed to death are to face a retrial after a jury failed to reach a verdict.

Darren Moorhouse, 49, died after being attacked at Athol Close, Halifax, in January.

Bradford Crown Court heard Dale Dwyer, 26, was responsible for the fatal stabbing but he and Christopher Churchill, 34, denied a murder charge.

Both men were remanded back into custody on Tuesday until the retrial.
