Detectives investigating the killing of a religious leader on his way home from a mosque have charged a man with his murder.

Jalal Uddin was found with head injuries in a children's play area in Rochdale, Greater Manchester, after being attacked on February 18.

The 64 year old was taken to hospital but died a short time later.
