A man's been charged with murder after another man died following an assault in a pub.
Policer say they were called to The Bear’s Paw on Market Street in Hindley on Saturday 15 September to reports that a man had been assaulted.
He was taken to hospital - but died three days later.

His family said he was a well-loved father, son and brother, who "would give you his last penny."
