Two men have been arrested in connection with the gun and grenade killing of David Short in Manchester.

Mr Short, 46, was found dead at a house in Folkestone Road East, Clayton, after a blast on 10 August.

The men, aged 37 and 32, were arrested in Stalybridge and Oldham on suspicion of conspiracy to commit murder.

Anthony Wilkinson, 33, of Beswick, and Jermaine Anton Ward, 24, have both been charged with murder and attempted murder.

Mr Wilkinson is also charged with possessing a firearm with intent to endanger life.

Both have been remanded in custody to appear before Manchester Crown Court on 9 November.

Police are still looking for Dale Cregan, 29, from the Droylsden in connection with the murder.

Mr Cregan, 29, is wanted in connection with the murder of Mr Short and his son Mark, who was killed in a shooting at the Cotton Tree pub, in Droylsden, on 25 May.

Three other men arrested on suspicion of murder have been bailed until next month pending further inquiries.
