The trial of a man accused of murdering a mother-of-two earlier this year has begun in Liverpool. 36-year-old Alison Wilson died after 27-year-old Stephen Duggan allegedly jabbed a broken wine bottle into her neck in Widnes in March. She was trying to break up an argument between him and another woman. She died six days later. Duggan pleaded guilty to manslaughter but denies murder.

Bolton comedian Peter Kay is hosting a series of fund raising 'dance - a - thons'. Seven three hour events are taking place at venues across the country with Peter taking to the decks to provide the music. They're aimed at raising cash for Cancer Research UK.

I can't think of a more enjoyable way to raise money for such an important charity than by people simply dancing to some of the best music of the last four decades and as a result changing lives.

Drivers being warned they will be tested for drink and drugs

Drivers are being warned of the dangers of driving while under the influence of drink or drugs.

A second drink can double your chance of being involved in a fatal collision.

Police forces across the region are launching their festive drink drive campaigns and warn motorists they will be subjected to spot checks.

Research shows one in five men aged 18-34 would have two or more drinks before driving.

Sgt John Brennan from Greater Manchester Police says it's still shocking how many people test positive.
