A man has been charged with the murder of a pensioner in Rochdale.

Vincent Kershaw, 84, was found dead by police at a house on Willows Lane, Milnrow, on 14 October after concerns were raised about his welfare.

A post-mortem examination found he died from head injuries.

Greater Manchester Police said Michael Fearon, 56, of Timbercliffe, Littleborough, had been charged with his murder. He is due to appear before Bury magistrates later.

Mr Kershaw, who lived alone, had collected his pension at Milnrow Post Office and bought groceries at a nearby Tesco Express on the day he died.

Police believe he was probably killed shortly after he returned home.
