A 15-year-old boy has appeared in court charged with the murder of a man who was stabbed to death.

Officers from Cheshire Constabulary were called just before 9pm on Sunday to Becks Lane in Macclesfield where they found the 37-year-old man with serious injuries.

He died at the scene.

The teenage boy, who was arrested on Sunday, appeared at Crewe Magistrates' Court on Tuesday.

A spokeswoman for the court said he had been remanded in custody and would appear at Chester Crown Court next month.

Police said the victim's next of kin had been informed and were being supported by specialist officers.

A 29-year-old man, from Macclesfield, who was also arrested in relation to the incident, has been released on conditional bail.
